Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Coal, Electricity, and Carbon Dioxide Activity


Students will research information about coal in order to figure out the amount of electricity used in a typical classroom, the actual cost to run the lights in a typical classroom, the amount of coal it would take to produce the amount of electricity needed to run the lights, and the amount of carbon dioxide produced when the coal is burned.

Learning Targets: 
Students will understand how carbon dioxide is produced from burning coal.
Students will demonstrate an understanding of how much energy and coal is needed to run the lights in a typical classroom.
