The Energy Office has developed ten free energy lesson plans specifically for South Carolina teachers to use. These lessons align with the 2021 South Carolina Science Standards and indicate the grade level covered by the standard. Lesson topics include renewables, energy conservation, green buildings, energy sources, and transportation. Lessons that align with the 2014 South Carolina Science Standards are available via the link at the bottom of this page.
Thank you to the following teachers for piloting and providing feedback on the energy lessons during development.
Deanna Taylor, Richland School District Two
Alexis Del Castillo, Ocean Bay Middle School
Alayne Lawson, River Ridge Academy
Amy Umberger, Dutch Fork Elementary School

In addition to the Energy Lesson Plan, the South Carolina Energy Office provides energy lesson plan toolkits to South Carolina educators.
The toolkit items include:
Squishy Circuits Kit
Funding from the US Department of Energy’s State Energy Program allows the Energy Office to provide toolkit items to South Carolina K-12 educators. The lesson plans and toolkit are designed to help educators teach energy topics in the classroom.
