LG&E and KU Offering Energy-Related Videos

At Louisville Gas and Electric Company and Kentucky Utilities Company, we know teachers are instrumental in helping students become responsible adults. In today’s environmentally-conscious society, including energy education in school curriculum is important, and we support teaching students about energy conservation and energy-related concepts.
The National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project offers training, technical assistance and support to all public, private and independent elementary and middle schools that receive electric utility service through LG&E or KU. To expand on this established program, LG&E and KU have recently added a multi-media component to its Children’s Energy Education Program.

The multi-media content is provided through the Library Video Company’s Safari Montage web server and hosts the following multi-media content:
·         All About Heat (Energy for Children Series: Grades K to 4)
·         All About the Conservation of Energy (Energy for Children Series: Grades K to 4)
·         All About the Transfer of Energy (Energy for Children Series: Grades K to 4)
·         All About the Use of Energy (Energy for Children Series: Grades K to 4)
·         What is Energy (Energy for Children Series: Grades K to 4)

·         Mechanical Energy (Energy in Action Series: Grades 5 to 8)
·         Nuclear Energy (Energy in Action Series: Grades 5 to 8)
·         The Transfer of Energy (Energy in Action Series: Grades 5 to 8)

Each 23-minute video complements Kentucky Core Content and offers a pre-assessment and a post-assessment for students.  Each video is accompanied by a teacher’s guide that includes a summary of the video, key vocabulary, pre-viewing discussion questions, questions for comprehension, follow-up questions and follow-up activities, as well as suggested Internet and print resources.  The multi-media content and supporting lesson plans are provided at no charge to all public, private and independent elementary and middle schools that receive electric utility service through LG&E or KU.
