Intended for teachers of grades 6 through 12 who wish to incorporate information on energy and energy conservation into drama, poetry, literature, or research instruction, this guide offers lesson plans to educate elementary or secondary students about energy through class activities. An introduction explains the need for such instruction, and offers five concepts students should understand after experiencing the activities: (1) energy is basic; (2) energy usefulness is limited; (3) the environment is affected by energy exchanges; (4) energy conservation is necessary; and (5) everyone can shape and share the future of energy. Following a list of committee members and an introductory letter are 17 lesson plans based on the five concepts, including activities for writing poems about energy, researching energy issues and roleplaying various viewpoints, finding songs about energy, staging puppet and mime shows, and debating energy issues.
