This pack contains Bloom's Taxonomy activities about Renewable Energy. The activities involve identifying green energy, how they are converted into electricity and ways to reduce carbon foot prints and make the switch to renewable energy.
Using Blooms Taxonomy Framework, this resource will enable you to use it as a tool for higher order thinking. For best results it should be used as an additional resource to your own unit explored in the classroom. Staring with basic skills such as knowledge and understanding, students will be challenged to apply facts that they learnt and apply it in creative ways.
For example, a Create Task asks students to propose a plan for their school to adopt sustainable practices. Students will need to explain in detail how the renewable energy would be use, where it will be located and justify their choice of energy source.
It is also great to be used as an independent task or a homework extension for students that need an extra challenge. The framework allows you to date when they have completed a task so you can keep track of their progress. In the classroom, I like them to finish at least 3 activities before advancing to the next skill set.
As a heads up, some of these activities will prove to be of more value when completed together as a whole class, and therefore you may want to select those activities and use them as class competitions or whole class learning experiences.
