Unit of Inquiry – How the World Works

Our new UOI Unit is How The World Works. This unit will conclude before spring break but will be assessed as part of the third-trimester grading cycle.

The Central Idea is: Energy can be transformed, stored, or used for industrial and personal applications.

The Lines of Inquiry are:

  • Energy transformation (change)
  • Where the energy that humans use comes from (form)
  • How energy use affects the environment (responsibility)

The summative for this unit will be March 28, the morning before we get out of school for Spring Break. Students will participate in an Energy Summit, in which they will present information related to a self-guided inquiry into an energy project of their choice. This project is an in-class only project, with supplies brought in from home. The rubric is attached:
