Renewable Energy

In our Renewable Energy lesson plan, students learn the basics about renewable energy, including its sources and how each source works. Students also learn about the advantages and disadvantages of different types of renewable energy.

Our Renewable Energy lesson plan introduces students to different renewable energy resources, the characteristics of each, and the advantage and disadvantages of each type. The lesson also summarizes some non-renewable energy sources for comparison. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively, with a partner, to do additional research on 3 forms of renewable energy and design a home that uses each type; they are then asked to answer questions about their design to ensure their understanding of the concepts they are working with. Students are also asked to match each fact to the correct renewable energy type, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to list sources of renewable energy, characteristics of each, and the advantages and disadvantages.

    Natural Resources

    I haven't actually used the lesson yet, but will soon. That said, I can say that it looks well planned, thorough and logical. It is visually appropriate for a grade 5 class, and includes some simple activities to keep the children's interest. It is not easy to take such a huge topic as Natural Resources and make it make sense in a short lesson. I think you have succeeded!
