Carnival Guide

&Background Welcome to the Primary Energy Carnival—nine games designed to reinforce information about the ten major energy sources, renewable and nonrenewable energy, and the ways we use energy. The carnival is designed for students in grades K-3. Each game comes with instructions and can be played independently. The carnival can be played by a single class or by several classes at the same time. Student teams spend up to five minutes at each station and win energy bucks by answering questions and solving problems. The instructions are geared for a nine station carnival program with up to six students on a team (maximum of 54 students). For smaller groups, use fewer carnival games or reduce the number of students on each team. For larger audiences, plan additional circles.

Get Ready 1. Create or assemble one or more sets of the Primary Energy Carnival games you would like your students to play and gather any necessary materials. Reference the materials chart on page 5 for a quick, itemized list of all needed items. You may choose to have students color or decorate items as you assemble them. Many of the game cards, puzzles, and pieces have room for coloring and decoration. When choosing questions for each game, try to pick questions pertaining to material that you have already covered with your class or make your own questions. Students won’t enjoy playing the carnival games if they don’t know the answers to any of the questions.

2. Secure a room large enough to accommodate the number of tables you will need, based on the number of games you have selected. 3. Familiarize each carnival game leader with the rules and operation of his/her game. The success of your carnival depends upon the enthusiasm and ability of your carnival leaders. Carnival game leaders can be adults, older students, or advanced students.

4. Select one or two individuals to be carnival ringmasters. They will be responsible for giving directions to the whole group. 5. Duplicate (on colored paper) and distribute at least ten $1 energy bucks and five $5 energy bucks to each game leader. Masters of the energy bucks are included on pages 8-9. Give more energy bucks, as needed.

6. Secure prizes for the top teams. Prizes can be energy related—such as food, solar calculators, yo-yos, frisbees, NEED t-shirts, sport bottles, and other NEED prizes.

7. Create a carnival atmosphere by decorating the room with balloons, streamers, and table skirting. Make or purchase outfits for each carnival game leader and the carnival ringmasters—vests, skimmer hats, and arm-garter belts.

Get Set 1. Set up carnival game tables in a circular pattern. The size of your circle will depend on the number of games you have chosen. 2. Organize students into teams of no more than six students and assign each team to a game table. Have each team select a team name, spokesperson, and a treasurer. The spokesperson will give the team’s answers. The treasurer will be in charge of the team’s energy bucks. 3. Choose a timekeeper to make sure the carnival runs in a timely manner.

6

Primary Energy Carnival


Go! The ringmaster should call everyone to attention and give the following instructions: 1. Welcome to the Energy Carnival. Today, your team will use your knowledge of energy to win energy bucks that can be traded for prizes. 2. Your team will have five minutes at each of the energy carnival stations. Answers will only be accepted from your spokesperson. Each team should pick a spokesperson now. 3. At each station, the game leader will award energy bucks for correct answers. Each team should pick a treasurer to be in charge of the energy bucks. 4. Even if you finish a game early, stay at your station until you hear the signal to move to the next. If you move before the signal, your team will be penalized five energy bucks. 5. When you get to each station, the game leader will tell you how the game is played. The game will not start until all of the game leaders have raised their hands to signal me that the teams are ready to play. 6. Carnival leaders, please explain how your games are played to this first group. When you are ready, raise your hand. When all hands are raised, you will hear the first signal to start. You will then have five minutes to play each game. After all the games have been played, the treasurer of each team and the carnival game leader at the last game will count the energy bucks the team has won. Each carnival game leader will then give the team’s name to the ringmaster and report the number of energy bucks won. The ringmaster will announce the third, second, and first place teams and award prizes to the winning teams.

Individual Play In some cases, you might find that team play of Primary Energy Carnival games does not work well. This is particularly true if parents and visitors may arrive at various times to play games. In this case, you will want to use the individual instructions for games, where applicable. For individual play you can provide each game leader with stamps of stickers, and each participant an Energy Carnival Card from page 53. Participants can have their card stamped for each game they visit, and turn them in for prizes. Make sure game leaders consider the level of difficulty of the participants playing games, and if necessary, include or highlight th emore challenging questions for use with adult participants.

Energy Bingo Students explore renewable and nonrenewable energy sources as they play bingo.

Materials Needed ƒEight ƒ bingo cards (4 renewable and 4 nonrenewable), pages 11-12 ƒCardstock ƒ ƒEnergy ƒ spinners, pages 13-14 ƒTwo ƒ dice ƒFasteners ƒ ƒBingo ƒ markers or chips

Get Ready 1. Enlarge the bingo cards (if you wish) and copy as many as needed. 2. Copy the energy spinners onto cardstock and assemble. Punch a hole in the center of the wheel. With a fastener, attach the arrow to the wheel loosely enough so that it can spin freely.

Get Set Separate the renewable and nonrenewable games—place bingo cards, markers, energy spinners, and dice on a table.

Go! Give these instructions to the carnival team or individuals: 1. You have five minutes to play two games of Energy Bingo—one about renewable energy sources and one about nonrenewable energy sources. Each student picks a bingo card and markers. The center of the card is a free space. 2. You will take turns spinning the arrow to choose an energy source and rolling the dice to select a number. Mark the number under the energy source on your card. The first person to get five squares in a row—up and down, across, or diagonal—calls BINGO. Then we will play the second game. 3. You will receive two energy bucks for one bingo and five energy bucks for two bingos.
