Teachers will be blown away by the diversity and creativity of 26 new lesson plans on wind energy in Canada, prepared by the Canadian Council for Geographic Education, in partnership with the Canadian Wind Energy Association.
Topics and classroom activities range from the construction of an anemometer for measuring wind speeds to an examination of how wind, among other forces of nature, has helped forge the Canadian identity. Aimed at middle- and secondary-school students in every province and territory, the lesson plans will be available at the Canadian Atlas Online in June.
The lesson plans are a complement to the wind-energy poster map included with this issue of Canadian Geographic and to a new comprehensive thematic on this renewable resource available at the Canadian Atlas Online.
