In this one-time course, learners will engage with a geologist to explore the world of fossil fuels. We will discuss the ways in which we use these non-renewable resources, gain an understanding of the advantages and disadvantages associated with their use, and learn about how and where they are found. Learners will model the method used to determine the presence and abundance of oil using modeling clay or playdough in this class. We will also discuss production versus consumption of these...
Learners will be able to explain how and where fossil fuels come from and will be able to compare the production versus consumption of these resources. Learners will also be able to understand the various uses of fossil fuels and the advantages and disadvantages associated with their use.
As a geologist, I have experience working on both sides of this issue so I have the knowledge regarding the benefits and disadvantages to using non-renewable resources in our daily lives. This class does not focus on any political influence on either side. It is simply information given to allow the learner to gain a better understanding of what we have in place for energy at this time. There will be a second one-time class offered on renewable resources so that students who may choose to learn about both topics can have a basic knowledge of both to compare to each other.
Please have your learner prepared with the following items for this class: 3 to 4 different colors of modeling clay or Playdough that you do not mind being mixed together one drinking straw scrap paper and colored pens or colored pencils
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will discuss and compare the data produced and maintained on the Department of Energy website as part of this lesson.
