Indiana State Dept. of Public Instruction, Indianapolis. Div. of Curriculum.; Indiana State Dept. of Commerce, Indianapolis. Energy Group.
Energy education units (consisting of a general teacher's guide and nine units containing a wide variety of energy lessons, resources, learning aids, and bibliography) were developed for the Indiana Energy Education Program from existing energy education materials. The units were designed to serve as an entire curriculum, resource document, supplementary materials, or as a laboratory manual of "hands-on" activities which could be infused into existing grades 9-12 curricula. Unit III, focusing on energy related to food production and preparation, consists of an introduction (rationale, unit objectives, and general background information), four lessons, unit resources, bibliography, and teacher evaluation form. Each lesson includes lesson title, objectives, background information, activities, evaluation techniques, and resources. Titles of lessons are: (1) Energy Use and Energy Conservation in the Home (Home Energy Game); (2) Energy Consumption in Food Preparation and Production; (3) Food Preparation and Energy Conservation Techniques; and (4) Oven Use and Energy Consumption.
