The Appetite for Energy

  1. 1. BIG HISTORY PROJECT / LESSON 9.1 THE APPETITE FOR ENERGY How do we know we that life is different today from what it was 500 or 1,000 years ago? One way is to look at how the way humans live has changed, and one area where dramatic change has taken place is in energy use. Working on your own, list all of the energy you have used in the last 24 hours. This might be in the form of electric energy, energy from food, fuel for transportation, or other things. After 2 minutes, get together in groups and make a connection between all of the different types of energy you use are connected to the Sun. For example, fossil fuels are formed from plants and animals over very long periods of time. The sun powers photosynthesis the plants needed to grow and some of these plants fed the animals that all eventually became fossil fuels. After 5 minutes, each group should name one or two sources of energy for the class and describe how it is connected to the sun.
