We rely on electricity for so many things, from lights, phones, and computers, to the heat, air conditioning and hot water in our homes. Think of how different life would be if we didn’t have access to electricity!
This lesson will provide easy steps students can take to reduce the electricity used in their homes.
Students will be able to reduce their electricity use.
Since we rely on coal and gas to provide us with electricity, it is important that we are mindful of our electricity usage. Gas and coal are important natural resources that we can’t replenish!
We rarely think about how much electricity we use. By being mindful of our energy usage, we can take practical steps to reduce our energy footprint. This helps the environment and animals, and it also saves money, because electricity isn’t free. Instead, it’s a public utility we should have respect for. We can all take simple steps to use less electricity. One of the hidden ways we can save electricity is by unplugging appliances that use electricity even when we aren’t using them.
Students should reflect on their electricity usage:
- Can you name 5 ways we use electricity?
- Why is it important to save electricity?
- How can our class save electricity today?
