Take an Environmentally Informative Field Trip to an Alternative Energy Plant
- Grades: 3–5
If you have an alternative energy plant near your school, take a trip to learn about renewable resources. In 2009, renewable energy, from sources like the sun, wind, and water, only provided about eight percent of the energy used in the United States. The use of renewable fuels has begun to increase in recent years, however, due to the high price of oil and natural gas.
