Earth Hour 2009 is approaching FAST! Saturday, March 28th from 8:30pm-9:30pm take a stand to fight climate change by turning off your lights (and all electrical items) for an hour. Visit www.EarthHour.org or www.EarthHourKids.org to learn more.
What will you be doing during Earth Hour? I had the pleasure of spending an hour with some wonderful Kindergartner’s yesterday (in the dark) to see how they would spend their time. I started by reading a great children’s book about global warming. Winston of Churchill, One Bear’s Battle Against Global Warmingby Jean Davies Okimoto is a funny story about a group of polar bears who know that “we must all do our part, no matter how small.” Below are some ideas that the kids had on how to spend their hour without electricity.
- Playing board games with their family.
- Playing with play-doh.
- Play cards.
- Build a puzzle.
- Light a candle (with adult supervision)
- Go for a walk.
- Look at the stars.
Not too bad for a group of 5-6 year olds! How are you going to spend your Earth Hour on Saturday?
