“Almost everything you do will seem insignificant but it is important that you do it.” – Gandhi

So often we feel that our actions or the energy of our actions have no significant impact on our environment. This unit, which can be customized to several weeks to a year, offers numerous opportunities for students to observe, hypothesize and share energy around a place. Students will begin the unit by learning about energy concepts in the concrete physical place and then move to semi-abstract concepts of people and their classroom environment. Students will deepen their understanding of energy by examining energy around the community with human-to-human interaction. The unit culminates into a metaphysical concept of energy interaction through the development of their own Learning Journeys.
