Becoming more energy efficient is a task that everyone should actively participate in and understand why it is important. While adults can clearly see the benefits of energy efficiency reflected in their utility bills, children may have a more difficult time understanding the significance. But that does not mean they should not play their part! If you are homeschooling your children and would like to incorporate energy conservation lessons and activities into your curriculum, contact Watt Watchers of Texas today.
At Watt Watchers of Texas, we believe that introducing kids of all ages to the benefits of energy efficiency--both for the planet and for our bills--is essential if they are to maintain an energy-efficient culture. For those Texas residents who homeschool their children and are looking for free homeschooling resources for energy education, we have developed free homeschooling resources you can use to educate your kids about saving energy.
While many schools throughout the state of Texas have become a part of our energy education program and have implemented our lesson plans and activities in the classroom, homeschooled children may not have gotten access to the same resources. At Watt Watchers of Texas, we want everyone to be included and to do their part in saving energy, so we have developed lesson plans and many other free homeschooling resources for you to use at home when teaching your kids.
Because we believe that saving energy is so important, we have made all of our materials free to school and homeschooling parents. There are enough costs and bills (including those energy bills we’re working to help you reduce!) to deal with, and these energy efficiency resources should not be another thing you feel obligated to pay for. We are happy to provide you with all of the free homeschooling resources you could ever need to teach your kids about energy conservation and the many benefits that accompany the process.
Watt Watchers of Texas is focused on saving energy, sustainability, and conservation efforts, and we know how important it is to demonstrate the benefits of energy efficiency to everyone. In the home, your children can get a first-hand look at the ways that their energy conservation efforts can pay off for their family and the larger world.
One of the primary benefits for individuals as well as organizations and schools when it comes to saving energy is reduced energy bills. While you are implementing our free homeschooling resources and teaching our lesson plans to your kids, feel free to show them your utility bills and connect the utility to the item in the house it represents. Something as simple as turning off a light directly impacts the electric bill. Your kids can see the reduction in cost and know that they are doing their part in saving energy and helping their parents at home.
Watt Watchers of Texas even has a specialized program for kids of all ages in school to help them get active in the energy-saving process, and you can bring this program home for your children as well. This program is called the Watt Watchers Student Patrol.
You and your children can join Lil’ Tex and Ann as official Watt Watchers who are helping to save Texas from the Wasters Gang. These outlaws are not just causing problems for schools and other organizations; they followed you home and are trying to waste energy. Your kids will have a great time safeguarding your home against the Wasters Gang and learning about energy conservation at the same time. Doing easy things like making sure the lights are turned off in rooms that are not in use and unplugging electronics that don’t need to be running will all contribute to your energy-saving efforts and show your kids that conservation can be fun.
We have all of the resources you will need no matter the age or grade level of your children. Our goal since 1985 has been to promote the energy conservation efforts of Texas residents and help to create more sustainability. Join us and let your kids join Lil’ Tex and Ann in their efforts fending off the Waster Gang!
We'd love to help answer any questions and help you get started! Drop us a line and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
