By working in small groups students can

  • discuss and help each another
  • exchange information
  • formulate ideas and identify actions which can limit the impact of energy use on the environment

The role of the teacher is to

  • introduce each topic
  • assist each group
  • lead the discussion on the ideas and possible actions of each group
  • summarise the conclusions

Lesson plans 

These activities can be grouped into lesson plans to explore specific themes which relate to topics in the National Curriculum. These follow the traditional format of a starter of say 10 minutes, a main activity of say 30 minutes and a plenary activity to reflect what has been learnt.

A day without energy
For this activity to be successful, all those taking part have to prepare beforehand, students as well as teachers! Each person has to consider their own energy usage from the time they get up until they go to bed and how they could reduce their individual energy consumption.

This activity should be undertaken on a day when neither heating nor lighting is required at the school! The aim is to encourage each person to decide what they could do to limit global warming individually and collectively.

On the agreed day, all students and teachers taking part should try to minimise their energy use at home, travelling to school, at school and after school. By organising suitable activities as part of the day’s lesson plan, this activity should help in understanding not only where energy is used but also how each person could reduce their energy usage.
