Design a plate to demonstrate natural energy resources.
Build awareness of natural resources as renewable energy. Create this lesson following a unit on water, wind and solar power.
Early learners can discuss practical applications of natural energy resources by learning about dams, playing with windmills and observing solar calculators. This activity can summarize the resources as teachers demonstrate the renewable aspect of each one.
Upper elementary students can discuss how each resource is renewable through either the water cycle, wind generation or observed "rising and setting" of the sun due to the rotation of the earth on its axis. Summarize such aspects of renewable energy resources and how they generate energy for practical applications through wind and water turbines and solar panels. Add closure by highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of renewable energy resources.
Display and discuss renewable energy resources, their practical applications and benefits to the environment.
