Why Lesson Planet?
A hands-on simulation perfect for an economics lesson, young learners investigate the availability of different sources of natural energy (coal, natural gas, oil, solar, and nuclear) and how this availability affects their cost. Simulate the distribution of natural energy sources with beads that are hidden around the room. After teams of learners find all their beads, they calculate the percentage of all resources their energy source makes up. This leads to a discussion of supp
