The students and teacher will go for a walk in the schoolyard or community, looking for different forms of energy (sun, wind, gas, electrical, food). This will be a shared experience that will become the starting point of an inquiry into different forms of energy, how people and animals use energy, how to conserve energy, and why it is important to use energy wisely. After gaining knowledge of different forms of energy, students will be asked to design and build a structure that uses renewable energy for a purpose.
