This inclusive environmental ILS was designed implementing the Open Schooling approach. Students are introduced to the main primary sources of energy and reflect on the consequences of those categorized as non-renewable. After understanding that mankind has a big problem due to the growing energy consumption and the over-dependence on fossil fuels, students look for actions that can be taken at home, at school, and at the local community, that help transition to clean energy and fight against the waste of energy expenditure.

Learning Objectives

After this activity, students should be able to:

  • Name different primary sources of energy and identify if they are renewable or non-renewable
  • Explain the advantages and disadvantages of renewable and non-renewable energy
  • Explain the energy problem that mankind faces
  • Propose actions that can help finding solutions to the energy problem
  • Raise awareness around the need to transit to clean energy and to consume less energy

This activity is a standalone activity, although it can be combined with the ILS “Renewable Energy: overcoming cultural barriers”, which follows a cultural impact approach.

  • The ILS design is following the principles of the universal design for learning (UDL) for inclusive learning.
