Students will recognize that air is a natural resource. Students will create a solution to minimize their effect on the air through conservation of energy.
Students will investigate the construction of batteries based on how different materials react with one another to produce electricity.
Students will investigate the construction, design, and use of batteries to solve energy storage problems.
tudents will learn how sedimentary layers are formed and how scientists use core samples to determine whether or not the area is good for their particular needs.
Students will look at the balance of carbon among the systems and construct an explanation of how the movement of carbon can result in changes to the system.
Students will compare geological maps of Utah to coal maps of Utah to determine why coal is unevenly distributed across the state.
Students investigate the products of a combustion reaction. Students will learn tests to identify gases.
Students will recognize layers in the core samples, understand why core samples are taken and identify the location of an oil deposit.
This lesson plan utilizes the Describe App to solidify student speech sound productions. While the plan is tied to all grade Speaking and Listening by responding to questions using a clearly stated response which is found across all the grade language arts standards, it can be adapted to meet any Speaking and Listening standard at any grade level, particularly in upper elementary, school based on the amount of support given by the clinician to support the sound producitons, clarify clues given, and the contextual clues discussed to support the student's ability to respond clearly.S(This resource's preview image was created by the author of this lesson plan.)
Students will learn local sources of energy in Utah and evaluate the environmental and economic cost of various forms of energy.
Students will understand the difference between conservation and energy efficiency, discover the importance of energy use in their lives and recognize behavioral and technological approaches to energy efficiency and conservation.
Students will consider their energy and carbon footprint by conducting a home energy audit. They will create a plan to be more energy efficient in their own homes and consider how their plan could affect the global challenge of energy production.
Students will perform a cost and environmental analysis of traditional and new alternative energy cars. Describe different alternative fuels and the vehicles they power.
Students will create a device that converts kinetic wind energy into electricity.
This lesson utilizes the Ute Indian Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Reservation (UIT) tale, “The Eye Juggler Coyote” to enhance comprehension skills, provide an introduction to how force affects motion and give information about the UIT. The students will read the tale and then use the story to learn about gravity and balanced forces. The connection of the Ute people to the bison will also be explored. The Ute people tell stories about Coyote and other animals to their children. Based on Coyote’s mistakes, the elders teach children about proper behavior and positive attitudes. The lessons learned help them avoid making the same mistakes Coyote made and suffering the consequences in their own lives.
