  • Description

Fourth Grade students take a comprehensive look at energy production in Wyoming in this unit of eleven lessons.  Students explore the concept of stewardship through the lens of mineral and energy production as they review the industry's history in our state.  Wyoming’s abundant energy resources provide a research topic as students learn more about oil, natural gas, coal, uranium, wind, and hydroelectric production before creating posters to share their knowledge.  Students then discuss how this energy meets the needs of Wyoming and the United States. Armed with this knowledge, students compare and contrast the benefits and challenges associated with different sources of energy production.  An engineering challenge rounds out their exploration before students present their knowledge in a “Minerals & Energy Fair” and write personal stewardship pledges.
