One Hour No Power

Description

The children were really engaged in this challenge and took this idea of saving energy very seriously. They were so excited when we reached our goal of 15 hours without power that they decided we should try to reach 100 hours before the end of the year. On sunny days we eat outdoors so we do not need to use energy and the children have shared this tip with their families.
