What Energy Sources Do You Use? Activity

Think about how you use energy every day. Where does all that energy come from? You use electricity when you turn on lights, watch TV or use a computer. A kitchen stove might run on electricity, natural gas or propane gas. The heating system in a home or apartment might run on heating oil, natural gas, propane or even wood. A school bus could be powered by diesel fuel or natural gas.

Print this page and make a list of at least eight items you use that need energy. Next to each item on your list, write the energy source it uses.
