Energy Kids — a Fun Place to Play and Learn
The U.S. Energy Information Administration's redesigned website, Energy KidsSM features more than 100 pages of fun educational content for kids, parents, and teachers. Kids can learn about energy and challenge their brains with energy Sudoku, crossword puzzles, word searches, and the new "Energy Sliders" game. Teachers can submit energy lesson plans, share their expertise and get chosen as contributor of the month. The site also features energy-related stories, hands-on activities, and research articles for the classroom.
Energy Safe Kids (ESK) is the premier curriculum for natural safety. Programs and energy education materials, developed by National Energy Foundation, are available for teachers and students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Energy safety is taught and explored through a combination of materials distribution for teachers, classroom presentations and an interactive, online energy safety community. The ESK website, instructional posters, teacher lesson plans, take-home guides, games and more make a powerful impact in the classroom and at home.
