In this Thought starter, your students will evaluate the role of gravity in five methods of generating electricity. After making an initial conjecture, they'll consider what's directly observable and what can be inferred from sources describing each method. Your students will use this evidence to revise their initial decisions about the importance of gravity. The activity concludes with the class determining the importance of gravity in providing future sustainable sources of energy.
Throughout the activity, consider how well you students:
Decide which physics concepts and laws are the most useful for describing how clean energy is generated.
How can UNDRIP be used to guide respectful collaboration with First Nations?
Where are the most favourable sites for geothermal energy?
