Teaching Tips

Positives

  • Students can see the progression of nuclear energy around the world over time and see which countries have the most installed capacity.

Additional Prerequisites

  • Students should know how to read a line graph and a world map.
  • Students may need to learn about nuclear energy, as there is no explanation or additional information provided in the resource.

Differentiation

  • Cross-curricular connections could be made in social studies classes while discussing the safety and storage of radioactive material.
  • Students could discuss why some countries use more nuclear energy than others.
Scientist Notes

The resource outlines electricity production from nuclear in different countries of the world. The method used in interpolating missing data is appropriate. Students can explore to learn on this latest report on nuclear energy production. The resource is recommended.
