The Energy Crisis

As we begin our study of energy in January, it is important to understand how energy is used in our lives and what effect it has on the environment. Read all of the Energy Crisis sections (11 short paragraphs) from the Power Knowledge Life Science link below.

Next, share your thoughts about how turning to renewable resources can help to preserve our environment. Please think about who your audience is, and what a 3 or 4 constructed response looks and sounds like.

Just for fun...

  15. I found that it takes millions of years for fossil fuels to form. Many fossil fuels we use today actually formed from things that lived many years ago in the Earth. The sun helps plants and animals to grow too.

  21. My thinking about renewable energy is that we should use it more often because it helps our earth. Also it takes millions of years for fossil fumes to form. So why not help the earth. In the section wind energy I learned about a way scientists are making renewable energy.

  25. I learned in the passage, Energy Crisist, that solar pannels on top of houses contain energy for cars, planes, rockets, and much more. Also, windmills collect energy when they spin.

  26. In the passage Under the










    In the passage under the
    ground I learned that there is energy stored under the ground called fossil fuel if we burn all of them we will not have any more enegy. I also learned in the passage energy from the sun solor powered rectangles that let us have energy from the sun Delaney
