National Energy Foundation, Salt Lake City, UT.
This six-volume set of multidisciplinary instructional materials developed by the National Energy Foundation (NEF) presents energy activities for grades K-1, 2-6. The instructional materials are teacher-developed, teacher-tested, and multi-disciplinary. The lesson plans and activities are organized around seven goal areas of a NEF developed conceptual framework: (1) sources of energy; (2) uses and applications of energy; (3) energy forms and conversions; (4) environmental and economic impacts of energy; (5) limits of energy resources and supply; (6) energy future; and (7) energy conservation and management. Each goal is then divided into concepts that are cited as necessary to a fundamental understanding of energy and listed under each concept are simply stated objectives. Included within each of the activities is time and material requirements, implementation procedure, assessment questions, student handout masters, and suggestions for career awareness activities.
