Auditing the Energy-Guzzlers in Your Home

Students identify the energy sources in their community as renewable or non-renewable resources. Using their homes, they identify the types of energy they use to heat and power it. They calculate the amount of electricity used by each household appliance and discuss the greenhouse gas emissions. They also develop solutions to reduce the amount of them.

I have been extremely happy with the materials I've located. I'm always looking for new ways to spice things up with my high school students. I use group activities quite often to help my students so finding other ideas is a time-saver for sure. Member since 2010.
