Little differences can make a big change. Wherever you are on Saturday, March 23, at 8:30 p.m. (local time) turn off your lights for Earth Hour 2013! This international event, organized by the World Wildlife Fund, urges individuals, businesses, and governments to turn their lights off for one hour to unite against climate change. The hope is to create a proactive, rolling blackout around the globe.
Inspire your students to participate and discuss ways to make a difference beyond those 60 minutes. This collection of resources focuses on energy conservation and global climate change. Students will learn about light pollution, urban greening, the lifespan of human-made products, and the differences between renewable and nonrenewable energy sources.
