PM- KE/PE of Wind Energy: Current and Future Uses and Economic/Environmental Implications.
#8 - #10 1:00 -1:30 PM
A view of a wind farm http://www.exploratorium.edu/tv/index.php?project=104&program=1383
8. Why Earth has Winds
http://nationalgeographic.org/encyclopedia/wind/
http://www.physicalgeography.net/fundamentals/7p.html
Introduce global wind patterns talk them through
9. The Wind Does Blow
http://energy.gov/articles/new-interactive-map-shows-big-potential-america-s-wind-energy-future
Interactive map click on by states to see how much of total energy is due to wind power USE good; data for future good for
projected timeline
10. Sources of current information on wind energy http://www.awea.org/content.aspx?
ItemNumber=7300&RDtoken=61421&userID=&navItemNumber=7077 bunch of wind articles very current information look
down the page to find them (Think about how to use)
Article about Georgia Powers purchase of wind energy from other states, http://www.georgiapower.com/about-energy/energysources/wind-energy.cshtml.
1:30-3:00
12. Use weather instruments (professional and constructed) to explore wind conditions in local area.
Constructed (might assign one per group demonstrate it at the end.) Also decide which other labs (Vernier, for ex) to use in
afternoon.
http://www.energyquest.ca.gov/projects/windmeasure.html - constructed to show wind direction/speed very simple but can be
used to record relative wind data; used with compass can give direction

quickly fun and get major pts across includes connections to life science How does energy affect wildlife? How do windmills
affect wildlife?

Purchased instruments digital and non-digital:
Sling psychrometer
Barometer
Anemometer
Wind vane
3:00-3:30 PM
13. Sail Cars from http://teachengineering.org Design and build functional models (sails, windmills).
3:30-4:00 PM

14. Daily Wrap: Review energy word lists, add to; what was learned today about geothermal, wind energy availability,
capture/storage, pros/cons, economics, and resources.
