Earth Hour

As I'm sure many of you are aware, over this past weekend 'Earth Hour' was celebrated throughout the world by people turning off their lights and technology for an hour. We celebrated this in our classroom on Friday afternoon.

The students were excited to work and play in the dark, but also that they were saving and helping the Earth. They wrote about ways we can save the Earth.

Building in the dark

"1. I can save electricity. 2. Put garbage away. 3. Don't cut down the trees. 4. Turn lights off"

"I'm trying to turn the lights off to save the world"
 Check out the website: for video and facts about Earth Hour. Here is a picture of the Toronto skyline this year for Earth Hour.

If you didn't get a chance to celebrate Earth Hour this weekend, find an hour during the week to unplug and enjoy time together as a family.

We hope you are able to use some of the students ideas to help save the Earth:
1. Clean up garbage
2. Turn lights off
3. Don't cut down trees
4. Turn off the water when you're not using it

What other ways can you think of to help save the Earth? Talk as a family about ways you can conserve energy in your home.
