Go Green: Host a Solar Cookout
- Grades: 3–5
To promote environmental consciousness, our school hosted a solar-powered cookout last fall. Parent volunteers created solar-powered "ovens" made out of cardboard boxes, aluminum foil, and some rocks and sticks.
Before the cookout, we publicized the event in the school’s weekly newsletter and on our daily morning TV announcements, explaining the idea and the process behind the solar cookout. The whole school was treated to a delicious dessert of s'mores cooked by the sun. It was a big hit and a great example of the power of natural energy.
