This activity is designed to encourage children to consider how they can save energy. Wearing appropriate clothing, managing cooling and heating systems, turning off lights can all save energy. Children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own comfort and wellbeing and notice how their needs change over time and throughout seasons. Older children will also be encouraged to explore what appliances use energy and how much.
This activity is designed to help connect children to the wonders of the natural world through sensory and play-based learning.
