Our resources and activities for Grade 9 students involve more independent self-led assignments. They’ll help students see how they can implement energy-saving behavioural changes as well as what their families and community can do to improve their energy efficiency. These activities will help them better understand their energy use and how to create more energy-efficient spaces.
While we recommend sharing all these resources with your students, feel free to pick and choose the ones that fit best with your lesson plan. We suggest presenting the activities to your class in the following order:
- Start with the “All About Energy” presentation and activity to introduce your students to the concepts of energy and energy efficiency.
- Do the student-led home energy review. To participate in this activity, email us at and we’ll send you a free kit with items your students will need to complete the activity. We’ll also provide you with the link and password to the online form your students will need to do their home energy review.
- Go through the other activities (Kilowatts to Dollars and Local Business Interview) as you see fit.
- Finish with a reflection with your students on what they’ve learned. Ask them to consider actions they can take to save energy in their daily activities.
If you have any questions about these resources or would like assistance in teaching these lessons, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and someone from Generation E will connect with you. We can also come to your classroom to give a free presentation; contact us for more details!
