There is great work happening at our Calgary Board of Education schools. I wanted to share out a short list of some energy literacy resources in case you are looking for that type of information.
Green learning – http://www.greenlearning.ca/programs/eneraction#teachingMaterials – you will find lots of topics here that support energy literacy – these are print resources – some are lesson plans, some are fact sheets
Inside Education – http://www.insideeducation.ca/ElementaryResources – here there are fact sheets, as well as lesson plans, and a video series about the oil sands
AB Ed approved resources – http://education.alberta.ca/apps/lrdb/detail.asp?id=2461 there is a video here focused on alternative energy – I haven’t watched it but the topic description looks promising.
CBE EcoSites – this is our system wide initiative focused on environmental stewardship – http://www.cbe.ab.ca/community/ecoStewardship/for_schools.asp
Core – https://www.albertacore.ca/access/home.do this of course is a great spot to find resources – here is one from core that is a video focused on energy creation – http://www1.eere.energy.gov/multimedia/video_wind_turbines.html here is whole series of videos about green energy – https://www.albertacore.ca/items/07ebe5c3-75b3-4af6-877f-3994161948d5/2/
If you are looking for some support at your school regarding environmental or outdoor learning please give me a shout – Roy Strum – in the CBE outlook directory or respond on the blog and I will be in touch
