Plankton to Oil, Food to Energy, a lot of Energy makes Fat Guy

    2. Learn what a scribe does

    3.short Oil quiz


    The question on the quiz:
    1) Where does it come from?
    Answer: Underground
    2) How do we get it?
    Answer: We drill for it then we pump it out.
    3) What is it used for?
    Answer: Gasoline
    4. short Oil story about Oil disasters 
    5. Oil background knowledge
     What it says:
    • Oil is a fossil fuel.  Other fossil fuels are coal and natural gas.

    • Oil is used for three main things:
      1. Transportation
        Oil’s chemical energy → thermal → kinetic of ______ & ________.

    1. Power Plants & Factories
      Oil’s chemical energy → thermal of water → kinetic of steam → electricity.

    1. Materials
      There are many things made of oil


    6. What oil is used for:



    7. How does oil have stored chemical energy from the sun?

    Oil was made over millions of years from tiny plants and animals that fell to the sea floor.

    Plankton’s chemical energy ultimately comes from the sun.

    light energy (from sun) →  chemical energy (in plankton).

    Oil was made over millions of years from tiny plants and animals that fell to the sea floor.

    Plankton’s chemical energy ultimately comes from the sun.

    light energy (from sun) →  chemical energy (in plankton).

    Plankton die and sink to the bottom of the sea and eventually their bodies get covered by sand.

    Plankton die and sink to the bottom of the sea and eventually their bodies get covered by sand.

    Plankton are compressed, heated over a long time and become oil.

    Plankton are compressed, heated over a long time and become oil.

    Then, the challenge is to extract the oil.

    another Helpful image:




    8. Oil is found under land and bodies of water


    9. Oil rigs are not perfect


    10.  Products made from crude oil



    11. Fossil fuel task quiz

    Questions:

    1) What are the kinds of fossil fuels?

    2) How do we use fossil fuels to get energy?

    3) Where/What do we use fossil fuels for?



    4) How is the chemical energy of fossil fuels → thermal energy?


    5) What is the thermal energy changed to?


    Answers:
    1) What are the kinds of fossil fuels?
    Oil, coal, natural gas the three main kinds of fossil fuels.
    2) How do we use fossil fuels to get energy?
    We burn them.
    3) Where/What do we use fossil fuels for?
    Transportation
    Electricity generation
    In factories
    4) What kinds of energy do we get from them?
    We get heat energy.
    5) What is that energy changed to?
    kinetic energy: for transportation or for movement of machines such as in a factory
    Electrical energy as in a power plant

    12. Simulation Task


    Task quiz:

    We did this simulation to relearn what the chemical energy in food was used for in our body. If you have to much chemical energy in your body it will be stored which intern causes obesedy. If you use a lot of energy on sports, but do not eat enough you will starve to death.
