Title: Following the Sun to Greener Buildings

URL: http://ehp.niehs.nih.gov/science-ed/2005/sun.pdf

Abstract: The EHP Online lessons provide students lessons that are based upon actual articles. The EHP summary for this lesson is as follows "Students read the articles Growing Green Communities and identify green building techniques that have environmental and health benefits. Students continue by reading "Sunny Spanish Energy" and consider another green building technique involving installation of a solar panel as a renewable energy source. Students interpret a sun chart that shows the path of the sun across the sky and use this information to determine how a solar panel should be oriented and tilted to generate the most electricity. This lesson extends discussion of a topic addressed with the articles.
