In this activity, students learn tips about saving energy with our home appliances by creating energy-savings slogans and making magnets.
Appliances can consume a lot of energy but there are smart behaviour changes we can make to save energy. The following are some tips and background information.
ENERGY STAR appliances can be more expensive to buy, but they save energy and money over their lifetime since they are more efficient than standard appliances. See Appliance rebates for more information on Energy Star appliances and how to recycle your old appliance.
A greater understanding of ways to save energy when using our appliances empowers students to practice energy conservation and care for their near environment. With your help, we can foster a culture of Power Smart youth in British Columbia together.
The activities also connect to a variety of grade-specific curricular competencies and content in a variety of subjects including Science, Applied Design, Skills and Technologies, English Language Arts, and Arts Education.
