This Fossil Fuel Use Lab provides a comprehensive exploration of the essential question: “Will fossil fuels run out in the near future?” Your students will dive into the fascinating world of nonrenewable resources, understanding the formation of fossil fuels, and the implications of their finite nature.
Students will receive datasets related to fossil fuel use over time, both on a national and global scale. Using these datasets, students will create informative graphs that visually represent the trends and changes in fossil fuel use. By graphing the data, students can visually identify patterns, fluctuations, and turning points in fossil fuel consumption. It’s a hands-on opportunity to understand how numbers can tell a powerful story.
Whether you teach middle or high school students, this lab is adaptable to different grade levels, making it a versatile addition to your curriculum.
