This is a full unit plan and research project for renewable energy. Renewable energy is not only an important issue in today's world but it also included in NGSS (4-ESS3-1) meaning that many districts are now required to teach it. This plan would work bests in grades 3rd-5th but can be modified as needed!
-A six lesson unit plan (plus a few days for the research project)
-A KWL Chart
-Student Research Packet
-List of resources for student research
-An editable checklist to keep track of where students are in the process
-An end of unit assessment
This is a great way to practice research skills, presentation skills, and learn all about renewable energy in about a two week period.
