Differentiate among the various forms of energy.
2.1

 
Illustrate three types of energy transfer: radiation, conduction, and convection.
2.2
  1. Conduction - background information - Conduction lab lesson plan A lesson plan can be found at this site
  2. Convection - background information - Convection lab lesson plan A lesson plan can be found at this site
  3. Radiation - background information - Radiation lab lesson plan A lesson plan can be found at this site
  4. Solar Oven - instructions on building a pizza box solar oven
Describe different types of energy resources: fossil fuels, solar, geothermal, nuclear, wind, and hydroelectric.
2.3
  1. How Geothermal Energy Works - a guide to teach communities the importance of the geothermal energy system
Distinguish between renewable and nonrenewable resources in terms of resource conservation.
2.4
  1. Animation showing how coal (nonrenewable) forms This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data or This interactive site would work well on an interactive whiteboard
  2. Classify Resources - Click on Resource ID in the yellow Activities box to take a quiz. This site includes questions for your students to check their understanding
  3. Energy Kids - energy facts about various forms of renewable and nonrenewable energy sources
  4. Flex Your Power - an interactive quiz in the format of a game show This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data
  5. National Renewable Energy Laboratory
  6. Natural Resources - Can We Use Them Forever?
  7. Renewable and Nonrenewable Resources - a twenty question quiz written by Kathy Tucker This site includes questions for your students to check their understanding
  8. Renewable Energy Fact Sheets - there is a section of fact sheets for kids and one for adults This link includes something for the teacher to print
  9. Renewable Energy Sources and the Environment - thirteen multiple choice questions This site includes questions for your students to check their understanding
  10. Renewable Energy Policy Project - from the Center for Renewable Energy and Sustainable Technology
  11. Renewable Energy vs. Fossil Fuels - Suggestion: create a Pro and Con list for each energy source. That will give you a a way to compare the various energy resources.
  12. A resource for the teacher to use in planning their lessonsRenewable Energy Web Links - from the Texas Solar Energy Society (their slogan is "The Solution Comes Up Every Morning!").
  13. A resource for the teacher to use in planning their lessonsRenewable Resources in Saskatchewan - a long set of web links to use with the topic
Investigate how the sun provides the major source of earth's surface energy.
2.5
 
Explore three primary sources of internal energy: gravitational energy from the earth's original formation, friction, and radioactive decay.
2.6
 
Diagram and evaluate pathways of energy transfer to demonstrate the law of conservation of energy.
2.7
  1. Conservation of Energy - this HyperPhysics explanation is on a page which explain several conservation laws
  2. The Law of Conservation of Energy - this ThinkQuest page uses a pendulum and colored dots to explain energy transformation
  3. The Law of Conservation of Energy - short video to illustrate the law [1:01] A video is available through this link
  4. The Law of Conservation of Energy - with the explanation this page has a short table showing types of energy transformations
  5. The Secret Lives of Energy: Conservation of Energy - scroll down near the bottom, there is an excellent animated image which shows several types of energy changing while total energy remains constant.
Describe the energy transfer associated with different geologic events: mantle convection, rock cycle, wind, and ocean currents.
2.8
 
Describe the human impact of large scale energy transfer events: hurricanes, photosynthesis, earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis.
2.9
 
Compare and contrast alternative energy sources and their environmental impact.
2.10
 
Compare energy sources and heat transfer over geologic time to current patterns of global change.
2.11
