Watt is going on here? Middle schoolers are learning about energy use and carbon dioxide emissions! In the first part of this lesson, learners measure how much energy different appliances consume and calculate the amount per day. In the second part, they determine the carbon dioxide produced by each appliance and compare their findings to regional data from the US Department of Energy. This practical activity gives learners experience with real-life data and current issues of concern.
