We have been working on reducing our energy consumption through the One Hour, No Power challenge as part of our Classroom Energy Diet. Students in my class chose to aim for 10 hours without power to achieve the highest level for this challenge. For this challenge, the description stated “One hour of no power is defined as one classroom not using power for one hour.” In order to meet our goal, we got other classrooms involved in the challenge. Students challenged our partner classroom, the Oak Lake Kindergartens, to participate. They also decided to reach out to classrooms via Twitter and ask the other classes in our schools to participate. We tallied our results today and we were able to accumulate 11 hours without power! I am really proud of the Grade 1s for their great work and for their efforts to encourage other classrooms to get involved in this challenge!
