Students identify an activity they do which requires electricity. Working backwards from this activity, they sketch the path electricity travels as far back as they can. Small groups then read about a nonrenewable or renewable energy source used to generate electricity and identify its pros and cons. Small groups share their research with the class and together come up with a sustainable fuel mix for their region.

Key objectives for students
Sketch the path of electricity from one's home or school to a power plant
Identify the pros and cons of a primary energy source
Use class research to recommend a sustainable fuel mix for your region
