The Best of Energy Book, Grades 4/6.
Feliu, Tom; Lively, Lisa
Intended for upper elementary students, these energy-related lessons have been adapted from existing materials and published in a standardized format. The 54 activities are grouped by subject area, which allows a class to investigate energy in connection with almost any discipline. Lesson plans include objectives, background information for the teacher, materials needed, references, and a step-by-step procedure; they are keyed according to energy "message," grade level, and time required. An additional "short on energy" section presents activities which require 15 minutes or less to complete. Several illustrations accompany each lesson. Also included are short descriptions of children's books, films, and curriculum materials related to energy education. (WB)
