Every teacher needs to watch the documentary that is included in this lesson titled "Catching the Sun" on Netflix (if you don't have Netflix, watch it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRNhcwCNCJw). This documentary explores solar energy and its impact on the United States economy. Please note that the documentary is one hour and thirteen minutes long, so you may want to use this if you have an extended class period or block schedule.
This activity comes with a quiz 52 question quiz that was created on Google Docs. The first 2 questions are just name and class period, so they don't count in grading. The remaining 50 questions can easily be answered while the student watches the documentary. The answer key is included.
