Presented by SRP Community Outreach Education Department
Building an Understanding about Energy Identify basic concepts of energy Write ONE concept on each cup Stack them to symbolize the knowledge that builds the foundation for energy literacy Put the Energy Literacy cup on the top
Renewable Energy Curriculum Materials 3 modules 3 rd -6 th 6 th -8 th High School – solar focus Created with the help of over 70 local educators Correlated to State Standards
Create a Pie Chart Use different colors for different sources. For example, solar might be green and hydro power might be blue. Use the template as a guide. Think of all the ways electricity is generated. Think about what percentage or fraction each source is of all the electricity Arizona generates.
There are 12 sections. Think in terms of fractions or percentages. Try to think of all the sources Arizona uses. Assign a value to each.

You have different sources of electricity generation on your tables. Each set shows the electrical generation process Sort the cards at your table in the correct order. You may not need to use all the cards. Once you have it, line up the cards along the wall in order.
Learn about ten energy sources Use the Frayer Model NEED.org infobooks Definition (in your own words) Facts/Characteristics Important To KnowChallenges

What similarities do you see? Is there anything different in the process? Which ones would you consider “efficient”? Which ones would you consider “green”? Which is the cheapest? Which is the most expensive?
Connect the hand-crank generator to the test bed. Set the switch to “Incan” for incandescent bulbs. Turn the generator and see if you can light all the lights. Now set the switch to LED and turn the generator again. What happened? Discuss at your table.

You will be sent an from SRP Accounts Payable to set up an account for you in a few days (after I approve) Follow the directions on the link You will receive a W-9 form. You need to print it, sign it, and scan it back in and return it. The information only goes to Accounts Payable and is destroyed once payment is made.
