This Writing Prompt is a text dependent prompt that will introduce students to the reason that fossil fuels can not be the sole source of energy in our community and introduces students to three renewable energy resources: solar energy, wind power, and hydroelectricity. I like to accompany this text and prompt with videos explaining each of these energy options to help students better understand.
*Also included with the prompt is a powerpoint with the text on the student sheet and colored pictures to help the students better understand the concept.
I do this writing prompt after learning about resources in Social Studies and Energy in Science to make a cross curricular connection, but with the text provided it can be done at any point in the year.
