School Name: St. Luke, Saskatoon
Grade: 4/5 Wagner
Campaign Name: One Hour No Power
Campaign Description: Staff were encouraged to watch energy related videos that were emailed out and to explore Earthday.org with their students. Our class then shared information with our entire student body on tips to protecting the environment and some background info on Earth Day. We did a 10 second countdown on the intercom and then every light and electronic device in the school was shut off (excluding Exit signs and bathroom lights). The feedback from the staff was very positive and it was a great learning experience for all of our students. What stood out the most was reflecting on what life would be like in third world countries that do not have access to power.
