3. Tour the school campus with notepads or journals and take an inventory of all of the possible devices that require energy to operate.

Remember to account for items not easily in view such as hot water heaters and air conditioners.

Take pictures with your ipad to be shared on Edmodo.

 

4. Take a virtual tour of a power‐plant and/or watch the videos on the operation of turbines  or gasoline combustion engines.  Write a simple page of information about what you learned.

 

5  Repeat the energy-use inventory at home, locating the devices and possible energy sources. Brainstorm a list of alternative sources.

 

6. Research ways to conserve energy around the house. One possible website for information is the U.S. Department of Energy’s Kids Saving Energy site.

     Complete the Easy Energy Action Plan found on the site.

 

7. Investigate some of the scientific properties of alternative energy sources through one of the experiments at the Energy Kids site.

 

8. Imagine an invention that harnesses a renewable energy source to power something small such as a portable video game player or a cell phone.

    Sketch out your ideas and explain how it might work.
