To start this activity, ask students to share things they do at home or school, or tips they know that help save energy. These might include: turning off lights when leaving a room; turning off the TV when finished watching it; using fans instead of air conditioners; unplugging phone chargers when not in use, etc. (For additional energy-saving tips, visit the “Family Resources” section by clicking above.)
Students will use their understanding of energy conservation to create a comic to explain the importance of living green and conserving energy to an alien creature. Copy and distribute the activity sheet to students and review the directions. Students should support their energy-saving tips with facts. Once they are done, have students share their comics with the class.
