Green Home Explained!
The ‘Green Home Explained!’ educational toolkit, is a comprehensive educational package created by The Energy and Water Agency to help teachers integrate concepts on energy efficiency and renewable energy in their lessons in a fun and engaging manner.
Thanks to the support of the Ministry for Energy, Enterprise and Sustainability Development and the Ministry of Education and Employment, the Agency has curated a series of lesson plans targeted towards year five (5) and six (6) students. Lesson plans also come with a series of both printed (i.e., wind turbine activity sheet and A2 posters) and digital resources (available on the USB flash drive in the toolkit) as well as a copy of the original ‘Green Home’ card game created by The Energy and Water Agency in collaboration with the Malta’s Institute for Digital Games. Kindly note that lesson plans provided are in line with the objectives provided in the national curriculum framework to allow for seamless integration within the existing syllabus.
Printed resources include Lesson Plan booklet and handout activities, wind turbine activity and three (3) posters highlighting what is energy efficiency, the use and meaning of energy labels as well as Malta’s energy sources. Digital resources include a presentation on energy efficiency as well as links to the ‘Green Home’ card game tutorial, ‘Mind Your Energy Installation’ game and puppet show, and ‘Energy Efficiency Malta’ webpage.
Further information about the toolkit and its resources can be found in the package.
