Product Description
This Hydroelectric Energy package shows how hydroelectric energy is produced and the energy transformations that happen to turn power from water into electricity.

The package includes an interactive PowerPoint presentation which shows how hydroelectric power is produced and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of hydro power.

The presentation makes liberal use of diagrams and pictures to illustrate the points simply and clearly. This presentation is suitable for multiple grade levels.

The package also includes two hydro power reading comprehension articles, a hydro energy vocabulary sheet, a crossword puzzle, and a simple lab which can be done with readily available materials.
