Breezy Power: From Wind to Energy
Claymier, Bob
Science and Children, v46 n9 p36-40 Jul 2009
This lesson combines the science concepts of renewable energy and producing electricity with the technology concepts of design, constraints, and technology's impact on the environment. Over five class periods, sixth-grade students "work" for a fictitious power company as they research wind as an alternative energy source and design and test a working model of a wind turbine, learning about energy and technology in the process.
