FUEL FOR THOUGHT

 

 

Our school has decided that it's time to go green.  Supplies of old fashioned
fossil fuels such as oil and coal are running out and are contributing to global warming.  The Environmental Club will be hosting a school fair to inform the staff,
student body, and citizens of the town about how to reduce global warming. 
One of the topics included in the fair will be energy usage.

The Environmental Club has asked the biology students to research the different
types of renewable energies and create a trifold informational brochure about
each type of energy.  These brochures will be handed out at the fair.

 

Teams of four students will be assigned to research a different type of renewable energy. 
Each team will have a series of questions to answer about their energy resource. 
Each question will become a heading in the brochure and contain the
information from your research.

     energy on the front cover of your brochure.
