Lesson Plans/Activity: An Exploration of Wind Energy & Wind Turbines Adode PDF
Grades: 9-12
Subject: Wind Energy
Summary:

This unit, which includes both a pre and post test on wind power engages students by allowing them to explore connections between wind energy and other forms of energy. Students learn about and examine the overall design of a wind turbine and then move forward with an assessment of the energy output as factors involving wind speed, direction and blade design are altered. Students are directed to work in teams to design, test and analyze components of a wind turbine such as blade length, blade

  • Structure of Atoms
    1. Matter is made of minute particles called atoms, which are composed of even smaller components. These components have measurable properties, such as mass and electrical charge.
    2. Each atom has a positively charged nucleus surrounded by negatively charged electrons. The electrical force between the nucleus and the electrons hold the atoms together.
    3. The Atom’s nucleus is composed of
