This clip introduces the idea of algae as an energy source. It would be beneficial for students to have background knowledge on terms like: energy crisis, renewable, and non-renewable resources.
I would use this lesson with my Exceptional gifted 3-4th graders. I think it would be appropriate for 5-7 graders as well.
