Students play a gamed called Fueled Up Rummy that was similar to the card game Gin Rummy. They had to complete sequences of how fossil fuels are created. This help reinforce the concept of how fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) are formed. You first need dead plants and animals to be covered with layers and layers of sediment. This causes pressure and heat. After millions of years you have a fossil fuel created. Because it takes millions of years to form a fossil fuels, the energy source is called non-renewable. So if you use a fossil fuel, it can never come return.
I hope you enjoy learning how the garden changes throughout the school year.
