About

In preparation for an energy awareness activity, students brainstorm the different ways that they use energy. Students learn electrical safety tips and then record their personal energy use over 24 hours. During Activity 2, they use these observations to categorize the different ways they use energy. The class then reads Sara Fanelli’s My Map Book and each student designs an energy map to visually represent their personal energy use.

Key objectives for students
Articulate electrical safety tips.
Analyze and categorize human energy use.
Observe and record their daily energy use.
Distinguish between energy needs and wants.
Visually represent their personal energy use with art and labels.
