Wind and Hydroelectric Energy Mini Unit

This is an exemplary teaching resource chiefly designed for educators looking to school their students on alternative energy. Though it largely caters to grade 4-6 students studying Basic Science, it comes with two exciting lessons that explore the principles of wind and hydroelectric energy.

Besides, the unit boasts a broad range of features:

  • Seven printable worksheets
  • Science stations
  • Activities with lesson summarizers
  • A splashy 28-slide powerpoint containing exclusive custom animations.
  • An extensive end-of-unit assessment featuring twelve questions spread over two pages.

Lesson one: Direct Instruction & Note-taking through Interactive Notebook Learning Map:
