Clark, Richard C., Ed.
Presented are 10 science energy education units designed to help students learn how to turn science questions and problems about energy into experiments. Each unit focuses on subject-matter knowledge and on the logic and strategy of scientific problem solving. These teacher-oriented materials include an overview of each unit, background information, grade level and subject area, possible outcomes, teacher notes, teaching strategies, follow-up activities, evaluation questions, resource materials, and other useful information. While some activities are appropriate for use in all or several junior or senior high science classes, others are more specific to one or two such as earth science, physical science, or physics. Among the topics included are solid state physics, insulative properties, hot versus cold experiments, winter safety, energy cells, differential thermal expansion, thermal patterns, solar energy, and heat transfer.
