The new NEXT GENERATION science standards are inspiring and challenging. Bring the excitement to your classroom with this lesson plan, designed to spark the imagination of 4th grade students through INQUIRY BASED learning! Using the "5E" model, take your students on a tour of Earth's natural energy resources and discover what's renewable, what isn't and what we can do to plan for the future. Students will ultimately plan an energy use policy for their school! This is a fun lesson - I'm so excited to share with you all!
