Learning and Conserving

Learning and Conserving

$ 0.00

Grades 7-12

In this activity, students explore energy consumption and conservation by reading utility meters and utility bills, comparing EnergyGuide labels, and exploring electric nameplates. Students conduct comprehensive surveys of the school building and school energy consumption—gathering, recording, and analyzing data, and monitoring energy usage. Students work in groups to develop comprehensive energy management plans for the school that include suggestions for retrofits, systems management, and conservation practices. The kit includes a Teacher Guide, a class set of 30 Student Guides, and the materials necessary to conduct the activities.

Student and Teacher guides are also available in PDF format as a FREE download.
