Description: This activity, from the Real World Learning Objects Resource Library, bridges the gap for students between understanding the effects of energy production on the climate and their own personal experiences by "helping students calculate the amount of electrical energy they use in real life and measure the impact their energy consumption has on the global climate." This site explains the 60-minute activity, complete with learning goals, step-by-step classroom procedures, materials, assessment activities, and resources for further information. The "Content Materials" section contains directions for students and links to further information to help them understand concepts in energy conversion and consumption. This is an excellent ready-to-use and easy-to-adapt resource for educators in the physics and environmental science classroom.
