Elementary Supplement: Know the Flow of Energy in Your School
The KEEP Know
the Flow of Energy in Your School is a supplement to the KEEP Energy Education Activity
Guide specifically for teachers of kindergarten through fourth grade
students. This publication includes activities that address State
Academic Standards, assessments, and extensions. It is available for free download in English or Spanish, below.
More than 2,000 elementary teachers have participated in KEEP classes. They report that their students greatly enjoy
participating in KEEP activities and have learned much more about important energy concepts. Teachers of young students
especially appreciate KEEP activities because energy is an abstract subject and their students think at the concrete
level. KEEP activities help address the learning needs of younger students.
Therefore, elementary teachers greatly desire and
have requested more activities to help make energy relevant and interesting to their students’ lives.
The Know the Flow of Energy in Your School supplement is designed to help the teacher use the school as an educational tool by introducing
kindergarten through fourth grade students to energy in a way that connects it directly to
their lives. It’s designed to make
learning fun through 11 hands-on, exploratory activities.
