Using the task cards in this digital download you can decide to have your students become experts on one energy source and teach the class or use them for a summative project and have students convince a panel of city council members that their energy source is the best one for powering the city.
Each card provides the students with the directions for the project, three mandatory topics and five optional topics. Student groups must pick two of the five optional topics to research. In addition each card lists at least two websites specific to the selected energy resource.
In addition to the task cards, there is a roles sheet to help students equitably divide the responsibilities, rubrics, and a note taking graphic organizer (Energy Form Thinking Map).
Best of all, this project can be completed with minimal teacher prep! You need to provide the print resources for research and/or access to computers with internet access if you want students to complete the research during class time. Otherwise, students only need to have access to resources to create their presentations (Power Point, Prezie, poster board, etc.).
This is an dynamic project with the built-in flexibility to be a teaching tool or a summative project.
Please take the time to look over the preview, but be aware that I have removed some of the content on the preview.
If you choose to use this as a teaching tool, you’ll want to check out The Renewable and Nonrenewable Energy Summative Project for an exciting way to close out your energy unit!
