Title of Lesson: Introduction to Energy
Grade: 6th - 8th

RST.6-8.1: cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts
RST.6-8.3: Follow precisely a multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements,
or performing technical tasks
RST.6-8.9: Compare and contrast the information gained from experiments, simulations, video, or
multimedia sources with that gained from reading a test on the same topic.
WHST.6-8.4: Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are
appropriate to task, purse, and audience
WHST.6-8.8: Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, using such terms
effectively; assess the credibility and accuracy of each source; and quote or paraphrase the data and
conclusion of others while avoiding plagiarism and following a standard format for citation.

The lesson will provide students with the opportunity to learn about fossil fuels and have an introduction to
solar energy and how it all works together. Students will discuss the topics of fossil fuels and renewable
energy as well as watch two informative videos about those topics. There will also be two educational games
that students will be permitted to play to teach them about solar energy. For homework they will take home a
scavenger hunt sheet and inspect their home for the items listed on it and brought back for the next class
session for discussion and turn in.

Student will be able to define what a fossil Fuel is and how they are used in the daily lives of students.
Students will also describe the history of fossil fuel and the effect they have on the population.
Students will be able to explain why there is a movement towards renewable energy.

Teacher will mark down on checkless those that took part in the discussion and will take the scores that
students made from the games on the same check list for their participation and attendance.
Because this is an introductory topic, students will not be required to have any prior knowledge in regards to
energy and its different forms in regards to science. However, the ability to multiply and device for
mathematics will be needed at later parts in the lesson as well as persuasive writing skills.
Computers for students to work from
Fossil Fuel
Renewable Energy




Teacher will perform attention getter for the class and once has attention, will pull up the weebly website
and use as a PowerPoint to keep the lesson on track. The teacher will go over the learning objectives for
the students and have them write them down in their science journals so they may refer to it and add to it
as the lesson progresses.
Once completed, teacher will start a discussion by asking two questions What do you know about fossil
fuels and renewable energy? and What are the negative effects of using fossil fuels? in order to gage
the overall knowledge of those topics from the students while writing the main points they share on the
board for them to refer to.
Students will watch two informative videos and take notes in their science journals for the areas that
pertain to the learning objectives.
When videos are done, teacher will assign groups and have the groups answer the learning objectives on
a single piece of paper that will be collected by the teacher for grading later.
After papers are collected, students will go to the computers and play the two games (Save the world and
Energy Hogs) with their results being recorded by the teacher for participation.
Near the end of class, the teacher will hand out the Energy Hog Scavenger Hunt out to the students and
tell them to take it home and check off areas accordingly for what they find at home.
If time permits, another discussion will be allowed for students to share their thoughts and feelings about
the two games they just played with the whole class.

Students will be using future thinking in discussions when they talk about fossil fuels and the negative uses of
it. Values thinking will also be included in the discussions when talking about the values and principles of
different energy sources. Lastly, students will also be analyzing the current energy systems that are being
used today and different ones that could be used in the future in games and discussions.
