Your students will learn about different types of lighting and play a matching card game to discover which types of lighting save the most energy.
Artificial light uses energy, so we can save energy by choosing natural light if possible and by turning off lights and understanding what types of lighting use the least amount of energy. By saving energy we help to protect our environment and save money in our homes. These are three types of artificial light we commonly use in our homes:
Using natural light helps us save energy as we can turn off artificial lighting but the following are also benefits to our health:
A greater understanding of energy-efficient lighting 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, Skill and Technologies, and Physical and Health Education.
