Here’s a lesson plan to teach students about wind energy and how research affects issues current in society. The resources include a comprehensive lesson plan, student worksheets, extensive links to additional information, and a PowerPoint presentation that can be used for the lesson. Students examine where using wind energy might be feasible, and design their own windmill out of common objects. They learn how large wind turbines work and look at the pros and cons of placement of those turbines.
