One Hour No Power

Completed

Description

Students completed their own hours of no power and tracked on their own personal tracker and on a class google form tracker. This is what students wrote about the time they did their own personal time with no power. What did you do with your time? And how did it feel? Anything else or any other comment you want to add? Made the bed into a couch again, boiled some eggs (gas oven) and ate/relaxed. Felt nice ! i mostly just read and tried to paint i felt relaxed n/a homework (textbook and note taking) I felt productive i read a few books and decided to do some art n/a I walked to tim hortons without my phone and walked back. I felt really good and relaxed especially because it was a nice day out. I read a book by my window, so no need for a light. It was a good book and I had a nice time! I went for a walk with my friend (socially distanced and masked). It was great to see her! I walked to the grocery store and back It was a very nice day and I had a great walk I read a book and took a nap, it felt different not having to look at a screen for an hour. I do those types of challenges with my family, so I'm used to it. I read my class textbooks and studies (without using technology). It felt good to distance myself from a device. I did some painting and I found it really relaxing Yesterday morning i turned off the power in most rooms while everyone was asleep, I went on a walk, I felt proud of myself, I believe this is definitely progress, if I continue I could make an impact on my carbon footprint. My family and i went on a walk outside and decided to cut off the power before we left. Studied using a class textbook. Went for a walk, good I did a very late secret santa gift exchange with my friends and then we went on an alleyway adventure walk. It was really fun and I love spending time with my friends so it made me very happy. I walked and read both of which make me happy I walked to and back from school which takes about an hour total. I walk with my friend and I always have fun talking to her. I spent another 2 hours reading which I enjoy and makes me feel happy and relaxed. I played a board game with my family which is always fun. I enjoyed myself and felt happy I walked with my dad to the butcher and found a side table on the sidewalk and took it home cause it was nice. The weather was nice which made me really happy. I like finding cool things so I felt accomplished. I walked an our with my friend which was nice because the weather was good and spending time with my friends makes me happy. Later I walked an hour with my dad to get keys copied and we found about a hundred lenses thrown on the sidewalk outside of a glasses store so I picked them up to make a suncatcher. I love making art from found things and it always makes me feel creative. Did a bunch of calculus problems I read, and I went on a walk earlier. I cleaned and organized I played games with my family I felt a little cold but I used a blanket and sweatshirts and read a book. I went to school I felt a little restless when my phone was totally unavailable to me I felt good because I rapped myself up and started reading a really exciting book. I ate my dinner and socialized with my mom. Dissapointed that I only managed one hour I went for a (masked and socially distanced) walk with a friend. It was lovely! I spent my time reading my chemistry textbook and making notes on it, and eating breakfast. It felt nice to get away from my screen for a while and give my eyes a break. I turned off and unplugged all my electronics in my room, lit a candle, and read my graphic novel. I felt relaxed and calm, candle smelt really good too :) I walked with my friends which was fun and made me happy I made dinner with my dad (I did the prep work so i didn't actually use the oven) i felt satisfied because i like working with my hands and it turned out really good I was reading at with a candle, and it was different then reading with the lights on because I was more focused on the book. I went for a walk with my mom. It felt refreshing as I had not been outside all day. I spent the day down town with my dad. It felt nice as I got to spend the time with my dad and see the city. I did my homework. It felt like I actually got something done
