Energy-SMART! Curriculum Materials
Here you’ll find worksheets, experiments and activities, and tips to help teach the material found in the Get SMART! section of this website.
The one-page worksheets review the key principles from the main thematic sections of this website. Here are some ideas for how to use them with your class:
- For younger students, use the questions to orally review basic information with the whole group.
- For older students, assign a section or sections of the site to individual students or small groups, and ask students to use the worksheets like a treasure hunt, completing them as they find the answers in each section.
After all students have completed all sections of the website, organize the class like a game show. Contestants can continue to answer questions until they get one incorrect, at which point a new contestant takes their place.
