Topic: Energy use, wastage and conservation
Type of device: Laptop

Description: After entering a classroom, have students sit in their respective groups. Use the socratic method to lead students into an active discussion about energy use, wastage, and conservation.
Key questions:
1. What did you observe in the classroom that had anything at all to do with energy?
2. Does this constitute an appropriate use of energy? Why or why not?
3. Useing the terms ‘renewable’ and ‘non-renewable’, relate your observations to energy conservation.
Students will sit in groups around workbenches in which they can discuss and elaborate on their observations.
Choose a representative for the group as a spokesperson to share the thoughts and observations of the group as questions are posed.Guide students through appropriate etiquette for carrying out a survey in school. Students will use discussion points to formúlate a survey of ten questions to be asked of students in the school body. Questions should be directed at discovering student awareness on campus about the importance of energy conservation.
Conduct a survey in the school using a questionnaire developed by students in their groups. Each group of students is to survey a range of four grade levels.
Students will use learn and save booklet to support ideas and questions.
