This 35-minute video presents an online-accessible lesson in energy conservation and natural gas safety. Featuring scripts specially catered toward elementary learning levels, three professionally filmed sketches will lead classrooms on an educational superhero adventure.
Through puppetry and sing-along for grades K-2 and in-depth discussion questions for grades 3-6, students are prompted to consider how we can use energy wisely and be safe around natural gas.
Scene 1: Time Agent Tina Mercaptan is assigned by her boss, Olivia P. Honeycutt, to track down Dr. Schmeinstein as he travels through time trying to destroy natural gas. In order to defeat Dr. Schmeinstein, Tina learns all about the basics of where natural gas comes from.
Scene 2: Tina Mercaptan travels back to the 1970s and meets Rhoda Richards as she prepares for a dinner party. Tina teaches Rhoda how to conserve and be safe around natural gas.
Scene 3: In ancient pre-history, Tina meets a talking squirrel as she makes a family communication plan to stay in touch with her animal friends during an imminent meteor strike. Tina also has a final showdown with Dr. Schmeinstein.
Students and teachers will also have access to an exclusive e-learning package that includes e-books, graphic novels, games, quizzes and lesson plans for the classroom that reinforce concepts from the show.
