Energizing Your Future with Energy, Economics and the Environment! Environmental Stewardship.
Kroll, Mary; Thomas, Susan
This curriculum guide is designed for educators who want to teach youths aged 5-18 about the interactions among energy, economics, and the environment. This guide contains five chapters of activities, each focusing on a different topic related to this interaction as well as several sections that guide session leaders in helping youth along the learning process. The guide begins with two sections: (1) "Developing Caring Kids," which describes the developmental characteristics of youth in terms of ecological stages; and (2) "Leading Your Best". An activity matrix provides information on leader requirements, goals, and age range for the various activities. Each chapter of activities begins with a background section that provides a basic understanding of the topic. Chapters include: 1) "Energy Basics"; 2) "Energy Sources"; 3) "Wild Energy"; 4) "Efficient Worlds"; and 5) "Global Issues, Future Trends". Another section offering leader strategies entitled "Energize Your 4-H Project Area!" provides specific ideas to share with youth to help them design science fair projects. A final section, "Train the Trainer", provides suggestions for holding six- or 12-hour workshops on this curriculum for session leaders. Materials include sample agendas, handouts, overheads, and icebreakers. (Contains a glossary and a list of Energy Education Resources) (PVD)
