This 5-page download provides space for students to record basic notes on 10 major energy sources (petroleum, natural gas, coal, uranium, propane, biomass, hydropower, wind, geothermal and solar). The information could come from a textbook, teacher lecture, internet, or the NEED.org Energy Infobooks. The notes the students complete can then be used as a tool to begin categorizing and evaluating the sources.
This note taking sheet can also be used as part of a "walk around" in which students take notes from their peers mini-posters. My Energy Source mini-poster assignment and rubric can be downloaded here: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Energy-Source-Mini-Poster-Project-1093370
