FLIP THE SWITCH CHALLENGE WORKSHOP
This Earth Day, Kat kid Adventure and The Cloud Project are challenging kids to be Energy Savers for Flip the Switch when they leave the room!
Ages: 5-11 years
Learners: 1-10 learners per session
Time: 40 minutes
- To learn about climate change, the major contributors to global warming.
- To understand the importance of conserving our world’s natural resources and how the small actions we take can have a massive impact on the planet.
- To build eco-habits in kids at a young age so they can be better champions of the planet when they grow up.
The Flip the Switch Challenge aims to teach kids how to save on electricity — one of the major contributors to climate change — one flip at a time. Kids will get an overview of climate change before learning the importance of conserving resources and diving into the Flip the Switch Challenge: a fun and simple yet effective activity that helps to build an important eco habit at home!
The goal of the Challenge is to get kids to turn off the lights when they room! (As parents, we know it’s easier said than done 😉 During the course of the Challenge, kids will receive small prizes (digital stickers, etc.) as incentives to keep flipping the switch every day. At the end of the two weeks, they’ll be on their way to being masters of this eco-habit and will receive their final prize.
FYI — To celebrate Earth Day, we hosted a two-week Flip the Switch Challenge at a school in California. Check out the instructions and weekly tracker worksheet the students used. (Flip the Switch Challenge.pdf) Kiddos taking the Challenge at home will receive something similar.
- Computer or tablet with Zoom
After attending the session, kids will receive email instructions to begin the Flip the Switch Challenge at home. We will also share weekly trackers, so kids can track and share their progress. We can all be eco heroes! All it takes are some good habits.
