Stuck at home with your little monsters? Our Energy Monsters can help!
Connecting you with energy advice and resources that can help you save money and live comfortably is our mission, and we want to keep doing that while we’re all cooped up inside our homes. TVA EnergyRight® partners with local power companies to make our advice and expertise available virtually, but many of you are trying to balance new-found homeschooling responsibilities with working remotely and uncertainty about the economic future.
So we’re bringing in reinforcements. Meet the energy monsters: Watt, Zap, Breaker, Newton, Spark and Bolt. They’re not lean. They’re not mean. But they are energy-saving machines. And they want to help you out.
First, for the littlest ones, we have four printable coloring and activity sheets. Each sheet features a different monster sharing tips for saving energy around the house that kids can do.
- Breaker’s laundry energy saving activity sheet
- Newton’s living room energy saving activity sheet
- Watt’s kitchen energy saving activity sheet
- Zap’s windows and doors energy saving activity sheet
Next, for children ages 5-12, you can download the Eye Spy Energy Workshop PowerPoint. With fun animations (make sure you download it and play it in presentation mode) and easy to understand content, it’s a great way for your kids to learn about where energy comes from in the Tennessee Valley, how we use energy in our everyday lives, and ways they can help save energy around the house. Check out the speaker’s notes for lesson guidance.
We’re all in this together, so please reach out to your local power company or TVA EnergyRight if you or your kids have any questions about how to save energy around your home.
