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 VII, focusing on energy conversions, consists of an introduction (rationale, unit objective, and general background information), 10 activities, materials list for first 4 lessons, bibliography, and teacher evaluation form. Each lesson includes lesson title, objectives, background information, activities, evaluation techniques, and resources. Titles of lessons are: (1) Calories for Heating Our Homes, the Cost of Heating; (2) Do We Know the Heat Produced Per Unit of Measure? (3) Measuring Heat Transfer: The Calorie; (4) Kilowatt-Hours, Calories, and BTU's; (5) The Most Economical Home Heat Source; (6) Construction of a Hydroelectric Generator; (7) Heat Exchangers; (8) Moonshine Travel: Sunshine Solutions (Gasohol); (9) Seeing Dust as a Fuel; and (10) Pedal Power.
