This set of student activities promotes understanding of global issues stemming from human consumption of energy.  Developed for use in middle schools, the materials are divided into three units:
1) Issues related to fossil fuels, 2)Human use of energy and how it has changed over time, and 3) Concepts of energy efficiency, conservation, and renewable energy sources. The units each contain several activities, teaching tips, supplementary resources, and interdisciplinary connections.

Editor's Note: This cross-curricular module provides opportunities for students to investigate their own carbon footprints and reflect on the implications of unchecked fuel consumption. We suggest supplementing it with a PhET simulation, "The Greenhouse Effect":  (see Related Materials).

This is one of several similar modules and activity books regarding science, technology, and societal issues.
