Caldwell, William; And Others
This activity and record book is designed for unit 1 (ages 9-11) of the Nebraska 4-H Energy Project. In this project, members are required to: (1) use energy wisely by closing doors and turning off lights; (2) inspecting homes for energy use at least once; (3) judging the best use of lighting in a home; (4) sharing ideas about energy use in a kitchen; (5) giving at least one demonstration on reducing fossil fuel waste; (6) fixing drafts around the home; and (7) making a draft-detector for a county fair. These requirements are accomplished by completing the activities in this booklet. Activities include readings (with questions and activities related to the readings), energy games, conducting home energy inventories, fixing drafts, making a draft detector (from newspapers) to lower home heating costs, and performing simple experiments such as determining how long it takes hot water to boil in a pot with or without a lid.
