A resource for teachers
The Take It Home curriculum resources have been designed to help students develop an awareness of energy consumption, energy efficiency and energy costs in the school and home. The activities are based around the Home Energy Audit Toolkit, which comes with equipment to help students undertake detective activities to look for clues on how energy is being wasted. Students are encouraged to plan and take action in practical ways to save energy.
Contact the Hobart Council Centre on (03) 6238 2711 to book class sets of up to 20 Home Energy Audit Toolkits, for up to a term.
See examples of how teachers are using the Toolkits in their classrooms.
The following documents are available in Word format to enable teachers to modify the materials to suit their teaching practice.
