Teaching Tips

Several sections of the activity could "stand alone" and be used rather than the entire project.

Before embarking on this activity, educators will need to determine whether the data required to complete the activity is available or if implementation is feasible.

Since 2006 when this was developed, many schools and districts have begun to measure and reduce their energy consumption, so some of the work may already be done and teachers can seek ways to "add value" to prior efforts rather than starting from scratch.
