Daily Objectives / Essential Questions:
1.. What is “clean” or “cleaner” energy?
2. What are examples of energy sources that do not pollute the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and/or lithosphere as they produce energy?
3. What are the positive and negative consequences of using each of the clean energy types?
Today in Class:
- Students entered their data on the Google.sheets for the Prevent Heat Escaping” lab. We took a look at the class data and compared results.
- We completed the conclusions for the “Prevent Heat Escaping” lab. You should have used concepts from the Gather Information section as you wrote the conclusion.
- We discussed what insulation was, what are different “real” types of insulation, what are some sustainable types of insulation and what the goal of using insulation is. I showed you the site below for examples of insulation: Types of Insulation Energy.Gov
- You reviewed different types of clean or renewable energy ( the Google.slides document on Sustainable Energy Types). Then we all made a Word Cloud using Tagul.com for an alternate form of notes. Tagul.com This is a really cool way to create a set of list notes!
- I passed out the HW and reminded you to use the site below to complete your work.
Homework: Read the webpage below. Answer the questions on the front side of the worksheet about clean / renewable energy. Next, create a T-Chart that compares the positive and the negative reason for utilizing clean / renewable energy (on the back side of the worksheet). The website below is very helpful to use a a resource. You should have at least 3 + and 3 – reasons why we use renewable energy on the T- Chart.
