Energy investigation and projects

The Cast

Fifth grade students investigated energy use in the school. They learned that they were wasting a lot of energy, and designed a project to attempt to reduce their energy usage. Students wrote and performed a play in front of the whole school to encourage good energy practices at home and at school. Students designed door hangers to remind teachers and students to turn off their lights, smart boards and televisions. After making energy use changes, the school saw a savings of $1,400.00 compared to the same period last year!
