Details about our Upcoming Buddy Activities: April 14th and 15th
Good afternoon Dragon Trainers! Here’s the info for our Earth Day Buddy activity next week. The who, when, where, and what. Please mark your calendars and schedules accordingly!
Who, When, and Where:
1st and 4th on Thursday, April 14th at 2:00-3:00 in the cafeteria
K and 3rd on Friday, April 15th at 8:45-9:45 in the cafeteria
2nd and 5th on Friday, April 15th at 12:05-12:50 in the gym
A fairly self-contained presentation and activity in which the presenters are going to bring Columbia Water and Light's energy bike to help define energy in a more tangible way, then they are going connect this with a representation of volume and/or weight of CO2 emissions, and talk briefly about how these emissions impact summer time temperatures. They’ll then finish up with energy conservation tips for the kids to do at home. Kids can photograph themselves performing these activities after the program—the presenters were hoping to create a mural of these images for the City's Earth Day booth.
Please let me know if you have any questions! Thanks!
