Third grade students learned about solar power with expert experiences. A guest speaker from SolAmerica Energy visited with all third grade classes. He explained how SolAmerica’s energy farms are creating renewable energy right here in Meriwether County. Students also created their own solar panels and used them to make s’mores.
These activities are aligned to our Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE):
S3P1. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the ways heat energy is transferred and measured.
a. Ask questions to identify sources of heat energy.
