Hydropower Resources from the NEED Project

The following resources from the NEED Project can be used to introduce students to hydropower:

Wonders of Water Teacher Guide and Student Guide (elementary)

Energy of Moving Water Teacher Guide and Student Guide (middle)

Exploring Hydroelectricity Teacher Guide and Student Guide (high)

Energy and Our Rivers is a unit designed for middle and high school students to investigate the role rivers play in transporting energy sources across the country.  In Activity 2, Energy in Flowing Water, students learn that that the upper, middle, and lower courses of a river have different energy levels; this could lead into a discussion about how moving water provides energy and into the different types of hydropower plants.

Don’t forget that there is also a collection of graphics from NEED’s curriculum guides, including graphics that can be used to teach about hydropower.
