The Story of Energy Production in Canada

Students will discuss what they already know about where energy comes from (types of energy) and how they use energy in their daily lives. Students will learn the definition of energy and the different types of energy found in Canada. Through demonstrations, students will understand how different energy types are extracted or harnessed, and make the connection between types of energy and how we use that energy in our everyday lives. Students will learn that there are renewable and non-renewable types of energy. Students will reflect on the effort and resources it takes to obtain energy, and will identify ways to conserve energy in their lives.
