  • Get your students to think of some examples of energy use.
  • Any changes that the students can see around them is due to energy. Can they think of some changes they have experiences today? (Toast cooking, alarm ringing, bus moving)
  • Any changes that the students can see around them is due to energy. Can they think of some changes they have experiences today? (Toast cooking, alarm ringing, bus moving)
  • Explain to students that coal is a fossil fuel.
  • You may wish to explain to your students about the enhanced greenhouse effect.

    1. 1. ENERGY – THE BASICS YEAR 5 & 6
    2. 2. ENERGY IS ALL AROUND US!
    3. 3. WHAT IS ENERGY?
    4. 4. IT MAKES CHANGE POSSIBLE! AND IS DEFINED AS THE CAPACITY TO DO WORK
    5. 5. THE SUN IS THE SOURCE OF ALL ENERGY ON EARTH THE SUN PRODUCES LIGHT AND HEAT

    7. 7. TYPES OF ENERGY GRAVITATIONAL CHEMICAL ELASTIC
    8. 8. ENERGY IS ESSENTIAL TO LIFE AND ITS CONSERVATION HAS BECOME INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT. BUT WHERE DOES IT COME FROM AND HOW DOES IT GET INTO OUR HOMES?
    9. 9. ENERGY SOURCES THE SOURCES OF ENERGY WE USE TODAY CAN BE CONSIDERED: RENEWABLE – REPLACED BY NATURAL PROCESSES QUICKER THAN THEY ARE BEING USED. E.g. solar, wind NON-RENEWABLE – ONLY EXIST IN LIMITED DEPOSITS IN VARIOUS PARTS OF THE EARTH. E.g. coal, oil
    10. 10. BURNING FOSSIL FUELS IS A MAJOR SOURCE OF GREENHOUSE GASES INCREASING LEVELS OF GREENHOUSE GASES LEADS TO CLIMATE CHANGE AND GLOBAL WARMING
    11. 11. IN AUSTRALIA WE RELY HEAVILY ON NON- RENEWABLE ENERGY, ESPECIALY COAL. THIS CREATES A LOT OF GREENHOUSE GASES.
    12. 12. AND ADDS TO THE ENHANCED GREENHOUSE EFFECT
    13. 13. IN AUSTRALIA WE BURN SO MUCH COAL THAT WE CREATE THE MOST AMOUNT OF EMISSIONS PER PERSON OF ANY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. WE ARE THE WORLD LEADER IN GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS!
    14. 14. WHAT ABOUT RENEWABLE ENERGY? CAN’T WE USE SOME GREEN ENERGY? LET’S TAKE A LOOK…

    20. 20. ENERGY SAVING TIPS
    21. 21. TIPS FOR SAVING ENERGY… • TURN OF YOUR LIGHTS WHEN YOU DON’T NEED THEM. • OPEN THE CURTAINS OR BLINDS INSTEAD OF TURNING THE LIGHTS ON. • TURN OFF THE STANDBY – THAT LITTLE RED LIGHT ON YOUR STEREO/TV/COMPUTER USES NEARLY 10% OF HOUSEHOLD ENERGY. • BE SMART WITH YOUR HEATING AND COOLING. TAKE YOUR JUMPER OFF IF YOU’RE HOT BEFORE YOU HIT THE SWITCH ON THE AIR-CONDITIONER, OR PUT ON A JUMPER IF YOU NEED TO WARM UP BEFORE YOU HIT THE SWITCH ON THE HEATER.
    22. 22. TIPS FOR SAVING ENERGY… • DRY YOUR CLOTHES ON THE LINE IN THE SUN AND NOT IN THE DRYER. • HAVE SHORTER SHOWERS. A LOT OF ENERGY IS USED TO MAKE HOT WATER (YOU’LL ALSO BE SAVING WATER). LIKEWISE, WASH YOUR HANDS UNDER THE COLD TAP INSTEAD OF THE HOT. • FOR MORE TIPS AND MORE INFORMATION ON ENERGY VISIT coolaustralia.org
