This online activity takes students to an interactive website where they will watch the process of converting the energy of coal into electricity step-by-step. They will then identify coal plants near them using the Sierra Club website. Finally, they will look at a live wind map to see where the air pollution from the nearest plant will go.

Essential concepts: Fossil fuels, coal mining, underground mining, surface mining, mountaintop removal, Black Lung disease.
