         INTRODUCTION
• The Resource Pack was initially produced
  by Mid Suffolk District Council

• Written for teachers by teachers

• Reproduced by the Energy Management
  Team as part of an energy education project
   The Aim of the Resource
            Pack
• Provide an introduction to the key issues in
  energy saving
• Help to develop attitudes and values which
  are conducive to a sustainable life style
• Provide activities to encourage a
  questioning approach
• Help pupils consider their own roles and
  responsibilities

                 home and at school, to find out where energy
                 comes from and consider some of the
                 implications and possible alternatives. The later

INTRODUCTION:     These activities encourage pupils to increase
                  their understanding of how dependent we are
                  on energy and how wasteful we are, often
                  without realising it. They also encourage
