Elementary students are introduced to the basic concepts of energy use and energy efficiency and conservation, using the school setting as the laboratory for developing observations and collecting energy data. Lessons and activities in this unit have been designed in a series to build on one another, providing all the foundations elementary learners need to conduct a guided student energy audit of their classroom learning space. Students are encouraged to teach other classrooms energy saving behaviors and recognize each other for good energy-saving habits. The kit includes a Teacher Guide, a class set of 30 Student Guides, rewards, and the tools and materials necessary to measure and observe energy use.
Student and Teacher Guides are available in PDF format as a FREE download.
