Experience Energy for Grades 3-8

Energy education is an important component of comprehensive climate change education and essential to achieving climate literacy. We need to become energy literate, understanding the connection between our energy use and consumption, the resulting impact on our climate, and energy solutions that mitigate its impact.

These lessons introduce students to energy basics, emphasizing the connection between our energy use, consumption, and the resulting impact on our climate and energy solutions that mitigate its impact.

As an educator, you play a very important role not only in how and what learning opportunities you provide to your students, but also the behavior you and your school model. In this curriculum, students learn the basics of energy, energy sources and ways we use energy; the connection between climate change and energy; the importance of energy efficiency and renewable energy as critical solutions; and, finally, use the concepts learned to design a low-carbon dream school. In the Appendix, we have included case studies of student energy action projects along with an action plan template with the hope that they provide some inspiration and ideas. Remember, you and your students are part of the solution!
