Going Green: Learning to Lead a Sustainable Life

OHSU-EP-1579
Going Green: Learning to Lead a Sustainable Life

Many of you have heard the phrases “go green,” “eco-friendly,” and “sustainable lifestyle” tossed around on social media, the news, and in conversation. But what do these phrases mean and how do they affect us, the planet, and other living organisms?

This 4-H Idea Starter helps students answer some of those questions for themselves and their families.

Updated February 15, 2022

In this Great Lakes Invaders Investigation students will learn the difference between native, non-native, and invasive species. Students will learn about invasive species introduced to the Great Lakes, how they were introduced, why these species are a problem, and various management practices that can be used to prevent further spread or introduction of aquatic invasive species.

After completing this investigation, students in grades 5-8 will be able to:

  • Differentiate between native, non-native, and invasive species.
  • Identify Great Lakes aquatic invasive species and state why they are a problem.
  • Suggest management recommendations based on species characteristics.

The lesson plan is best used with an invasive species education kits called the Attack Pack. Attack Packs include examples of invasive species associated with the lesson plan and information cards on each organisms. To borrow an Attack Pack for free contact your local Ohio Sea Grant Educator.

2019 Ohio Sea Grant Kiosk Panel

OHSU-SLC-1824
2019 Ohio Sea Grant Kiosk Panel

Lake Erie is the warmest, shallowest and most productive of all of the Great Lakes, producing more fish for human consumption than the rest of the Great Lakes combined. As one of Ohio’s most valuable natural resources, the lake needs to be protected. Our economy, environment and quality of life depend on it.

Ohio Sea Grant, based at The Ohio State University, uses research, education and outreach to preserve Lake Erie and other natural resources for generations to come. Ohio Sea Grant is part of NOAA Sea Grant, a national network of 34 Sea Grant programs dedicated to the protection and sustainable use of marine and Great Lakes resources.

Solar Technology Curriculum: Introduction

OHSU-EP-1517
Solar Technology Curriculum: Introduction

Sunlight is a renewable source of energy for Earth. The demand for cleaner energy sources and the development of strategies to harness the sun’s energy has led to an explosion of technology worldwide. Now, you can become part of the clean energy boom with this solar technology curriculum, feating four in-depth and hands-on lessons for educators to use in their classrooms to teach solar technology to a new generation.

LENGTH: 1 page

Understanding the Mechanics of Solar Technology

OHSU-EP-1513
Understanding the Mechanics of Solar Technology

Solar technology seems very complex, but it can actually be rather simple. This interactive lesson is designed to help students learn the mechanics of energy transformation through the use of a small solar-powered toy.

LENGTH: 2 pages

Using Models to Investigate Solar Thermal Technology

OHSU-EP-1518
Using Models to Investigate Solar Thermal Technology

The sun provides energy to earth via light and heat. Humans can harness that unlimited clean energy to power our world through a number of methods. In this lesson and activity, students will construct their own solar thermal tubes to determine what materials most efficiently transfer solar energy.

LENGTH: 15 pages

Building a Solar Photovoltaic Array by Exploring Series and Parallel Circuits

OHSU-EP-1519
Building a Solar Photovoltaic Array by Exploring Series and Parallel Circuits

Solar panels are typically placed deliberately to maximize energy output, but how exactly does the layout of an array, or, more accurately, the circuit, affect the energy output of solar cells? In this activity, Students will experiment with different cicuit types and layouts to determine the optimal design for greatest energy production.

LENGTH: 17 pages

Using Real-Time Data to Relate Solar Energy Production to the Sun’s Location

OHSU-EP-1520
Using Real-Time Data to Relate Solar Energy Production to the Sun’s Location

The sun is an infinite source of clean energy, but it can be difficult to capture all of its energy because it moves across the sky, meaning that a position that may optimize energy production in the morning may not be very efficient in the evening. As such, solar arrays are designed to maximize output throughout the day and year. In this activity, students will use real-time data to learn how solar panel placement affects its energy production and use that knowledge to design their own arrays for a given location and season.
