The Power of Green program reinforces language arts, math, and science skills while exploring tips for conserving energy and recycling, and teaching about electric and gas safety.
This storyboarding and writing activity gets students to spread awareness about energy conservation.
Skills supporting learning standards: writing informative/explanatory text, conducting research, participating in group discussions, creating artwork to demonstrate a topic, theme, or concept
To help raise awareness about energy conservation, students will be challenged to create public service announcements (PSAs). Distribute copies of the "My Earth Day Message" worksheet to students. The activity sheet includes prompts to help students plan their PSAs. After they complete the page, students should create a script and storyboard for their PSAs on separate paper. Students could work independently or in groups to do the activity. When they're done, have students share their PSAs with the class.
