Power to Change Activity Kit (Grades 5 to 8)

Borrow the “Power to Change” toolkit for your school or community group!

These hands on, engaging activities supplement learning around climate change and energy conservation. Our goal is that students gain the knowledge and inspiration to make changes in their own lives to reduce energy use and address climate change. We want students to know that we all have the Power to Change

Activities included:

  1. Life Cycle Analysis: Let’s discover the energy cost of some of the stuff we buy.
  2. Examples of Excellence in Hamilton: Communities are working hard to tackle climate change and conserve energy.
  3. Perfectly Comfortable: Heating and cooling our homes can use a lot of energy.  How can we be comfortable AND conserve energy?
  4. Build a Lunch: Some of our food choices have a bigger impact on the environment than others.
  5. Planning for Fun: We need to get in the habit of noticing when we are using energy, and when we could choose to use less.

The toolkit is available in both French and English. The toolkit is available at no cost, and can be signed out for up to 2 weeks. Please note that the toolkit must be picked up/dropped off at Green Venture’s EcoHouse. The toolkit is designed for grades 5-8.
