Quick Energy for Elementary Teachers.
National Energy Foundation, Salt Lake City, UT.
These activities and activity ideas are designed to reinforce energy concepts when only short periods of time are available. They require little teacher preparation, and take only a few minutes to complete. Some activities can be extended for longer periods of time. The activities have been separated into the following general categories: (1) drawing and verbal communication; (2) research and written communication; (3) energy experiments; and (4) energy games. The activities in category (1) and (2) may serve as ideas for small groups or the entire classroom. Some of these ideas lend themselves well to independent learning centers. The energy-related experiments also lend themselves to learning centers, or may be used as extension activities with the entire class. The energy games are mostly pencil-and-paper activities. Answers to the activities are provided at the end of each section. (CW)
