This informative and entertaining package includes a wealth of material and exercises on wind energy, its environmental benefits, and challenges. Materials are aligned with Common Core and address Next Generation Science Standards as well.
Included with the PowerPoint presentation on windmill technology (at the elementary level), are:
Reading comprehension exercises
Interactive notebook sheets
Interactive vocabulary exercises
Comprehensive teacher notes and answer keys
A simple, fun wind pinwheel class project
The instructor can use the discussion questions at the end of the slide presentation to encourage critical thinking and in-class discussions, or use them as additional extension assignments for the students to write up and turn in.
Completing the PowerPoint and the interactive exercises should give the students a good basic understanding of how windmills convert wind energy to electricity. They will also now have new technical vocabulary, and an understanding of the environmental aspects of wind energy.
