6th Grade Energy Debates
GREEN Charter's 6th graders explored Renewable and Nonrenewable Energy sources in order to have a debate. The students utilized the NEED Infobooks and online resources in order to discuss their energy source. The debate consisted of an introduction on the source, 2 questions from the moderator, and a wrap-up. The students discussed where their source is found, how we use it, the cost-effectiveness, benefits and most importantly why their source is more beneficial than the opposing source. The students quickly realized that these sources could be debated all day and that there is no one source that stands out as the best for the economy, environment, and people!
