Energy All Around Us

Two 35-minute sessions

In this lesson, students learn the difference between renewable and nonrenewable energy. They explore examples of each type of energy, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each. Then students apply what they’ve learned by creating a model of a windmill that can convert wind—a renewable energy source—to mechanical energy. They use the windmill to accomplish work, and then they experiment with and reflect upon ways in which we can take advantage of renewable energy resources.
