Students will learn the difference between conservation and energy efficiency and behavioral and technological approaches to energy efficiency and conservation.
SEEd ESS.4.4 Evaluate design solutions for a major global or local environmental problem based on one of Earth’s systems. Define the problem, identify criteria and constraints, analyze available data on proposed solutions, and determine an optimal solution. Examples of major global or local problems could include water pollution or availability, air pollution, deforestation, or energy production. (ESS3.C, ETS1.A, ETS1.B, ETS1.C)
Lesson Performance Expectations
Students will understand the difference between conservation and energy efficiency. Students will discover the importance of energy use in their lives. Students will recognize the difference between behavioral and technological approaches to energy efficiency and conservation.
