Energywatch: Designing Energy Education Into the Curriculum, Volume 1 - Grades K-6.
Krukowski, Pat, Ed.; And Others
Contained in this teacher's manual are over 40 energy education activities for elementary school students. Lessons are designed for science, social studies, mathematics, and language arts classes. This approach is intended to allow teachers to provide students with energy-related learning opportunities throughout the school program as parts of courses that are already being taught. Activities are organized under six major topic headings: (1) Energy - The Concept, (2) Energy Sources, (3) Energy Uses, (4) Energy Conservation, (5) Energy and Economics, and (6) Energy and the Environment. Learning strategies employed range from class discussions and values clarification experiences to model building, performing experiments, and using resource materials. Lesson plans include objectives, skills, background information for the teacher, required preparation, references, student handouts, and step-by-step procedures for carrying out the activities. (WB)
