Energy Efficient Homes
As a culminating activity to their 6th grade energy unit, Mrs. Smith's students constructed their own Energy Efficient homes. They spent a few days researching energy efficient items and produced a cost effectiveness analysis. Each team then created a design/floor plan of their house, as well as listed the materials they would use to represent their energy efficient items. Some of the items included were: solar panels, tankless water heaters, LED lights, green roofs, denim insulation, chili pepper pumps, energy efficient appliances, and dual pane windows. The students did a great job of putting their best efforts into such a fun and “real world” activity!
