School Energy House Kit Lesson Plans for Key Stage 2 and 3

School Energy House Kit Lesson PlansThe School Energy House Kit Lesson Plans were developed to teach pupils about personal energy use and climate change and to involve them in planning and implementing a low energy lifestyle at home and at school. The central feature of the programme is to design and produce a model home (the Energy House), demonstrating features of energy good practice, to be used as a tool to inform and engage others.

The School Energy House Kit Lesson Plans are designed to sit within the current Design and Technology learning programme. These are accompanied by a series of Science lesson plans to provide pupils with a greater understanding of the importance of reducing energy consumption – particularly with regards to international concerns about human induced climate change.

Activity plans for PHSE and French are also included to increase pupils’ awareness of the links between energy use, health and wealth; to promote a sense of social responsibility; and to encourage cross cultural learning between participating UK and French Schools. A variety of Extra Curricular Activities have been developed in addition to continue the learning outside of the classroom.

All lesson plans, guidance notes and supporting documents are available for free, in electronic format, for schools to access.
