Energy Activities for the Primary Classroom. Revised.
Tierney, Blue, Comp.
An energy education program at the primary level should help students to understand the nature and importance of energy, consider different energy sources, learn about energy conservation, prepare for energy related careers, and become energy conscious in other career fields. The activities charts, readings, and experiments provided in this nine-section manual are designed to meet the objectives of such a program. The materials in the first five sections focus on: (1) the nature of energy; (2) uses of energy; (3) non-renewable energy and pollution; (4) energy conservation; and (5) solar energy. The next four sections provide experiments dealing with solar energy, insulation to conserve energy, wind to produce energy, and water to produce energy. Procedures and instructional strategies are provided when applicable. (JN)
