Included are 15 activity sheets, 14 worksheets, 32 readings and 18 overhead transparency masters for use with units on: (1) the history and technology of fossil fuels; (2) energy from nuclear fission; (3) renewable energy sources; (4) energy in the United States; (5) economics and decision-making; and (6) energy conservation. Also included with each unit is an overview and lesson plans for each activity/topic.
