Page 10: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

State Objectives

• Students will create a spreadsheet based on energy bills from their homes before and after methods of energy conservation are chosen and implemented

• Students will predict the effects of their conservation methods on the amount of energy used in the household per student

Select instructional methods, media and materials

• Method

• Students choose groups in each class

• Six (6) groups of four (4)

• Class A (a.m. group): Power

• Class B (p.m. group): Water

Page 14: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Select instructional methods, media and materials• Media

• Computer

• Excel/Numbers programs

• Spreadsheet

Page 15: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Select instructional methods, media and materials

• Materials

• Energy bills from home

• Computer

• Projector

• Printer

• Internet

• Calculator

Page 16: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Utilize media and materials

• Preview materials

• All students will bring in an energy bill (water/power) from the previous month

Page 17: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Utilize media and materials

• Prepare materials

• One (1) computer per group

• Examples of conservation methods

• Spreadsheet template with formulas

Page 18: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Utilize media and materials

• Prepare environment

• Ensure all computers:

• Are working properly

• Have internet access

• Have Excel/Numbers

Page 19: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Require learner participation

• Students divide total energy bill by number of people in household

Number in household 5

Energy bill total $500.00

Student cost $100.00

Or: Energy bill total divided by (/) number in household = student cost

500/5 = 100

Page 20: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Require learner participation

• Students will take turns entering their share of the energy cost into the group

Page 22: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Require learner participation

• Each group will:

• Research conservation methods on the internet

• Choose one method of conservation

• Write a paragraph on the method chosen

Page 23: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Require learner participation

• Student paragraphs should include:

• Why the conservation method was chosen

• How it will be implemented

• How much the group thinks the method will reduce energy consumption

Page 24: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Require learner participation

• Students will:

• Print spreadsheets, graphs and paragraphs

• Display each on designated area of classroom wall

Page 25: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Require learner participation

• Students will:

• Bring in energy bill for the following three months

• Repeat process for:

• entering data

• creating graphs

Page 26: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Require learner participation

• At the end of the last month (May), students will:

• Determine whether or not they met their group goal

• Each student will write a reflection paper

Page 27: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Require learner participation• Reflection papers should include:

• Results of experiment

• Why the student thinks the group did or did not meet their goal

• How the lesson has changed their view of energy consumption

• How the lesson will or will not change their energy consumption in the future

Page 28: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Require learner participation

• Presentation:

• Each group will present to the class:

• Initial data (total per group)

• Method of conservation

• Group goal

• Energy consumption per month (group)

Page 29: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Evaluate and revise

• Assessment of learner achievement

• Students in the two (2) 6th grade science classes will enter data into an electronic spreadsheet using either the Excel or Numbers programs and create graphs/charts when given baseline data and progress data with at least 70% accuracy.

Page 30: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Evaluate and revise

• Evaluation of media and methods:

• Students had ample access to computers, printers, projectors, etc.

• Giving students a template to use for their spreadsheets proved helpful

• Students worked well in chosen groups

Page 31: Assure Lesson Plan 6th Grade Science

Evaluate and revise• Evaluation of instructor/instruction

• Parent involvement

• Graphs

• Allow each student to create own graphs

• Group can pick the best graph to display
