09 26-2012-sun energy

  1. 1. Brainstorm: On page 32, brainstorm a list of energy sources with your partner.
  2. 2. Sort your energy sourcesProduced by the Sun (direct or Not produced by the Sunindirect)
  3. 3. Where did you put the followingenergy sources? Coal Oil Natural Gas Solar Wind Hydroelectric Geothermal Tidal Nuclear Biomass
  4. 4. Solar Energy from the sun.
  5. 5. Wind Wind is caused by the unequal heating of the Earth.
  6. 6. Hydroelectric/Water Hydroelectric power comes from moving water. Water moves throughout the planet because of the water cycle. What powers the water cycle?
  7. 7. Coal, Oil, and Natural Gas (FossilFuels) Fossil fuels formed from the remains of plants. Plants grow and make food through photosynthesis.
  8. 8. Biomass Biomass produces energy from plants.
  9. 9. Nuclear and Geothermal Nuclear energy comes from the fission of radioactive material. This material formed at the creation of the solar system. Geothermal energy comes from the heat of Earth’s interior/core. This heat is produced by the breaking down of radioactive material.
  10. 10. Tidal Harnessing energy from tide movements. Gravity from the moon (70%) and the sun (30%)
