We have developed a Energy and Water Saving Education Kit for schools. This kit is designed for Stage 2 and 3 students to help them to understand how energy use and water used can impact on climate change. There are many activities for teachers to use to support these concepts and to aid in the teaching of the new Curriculum. This kit can be used to assist teachers before and after visits involving the Sustainability Trailer. The kit contains teacher notes and lessons on energy saving, electricity, sources of energy and solar cars and equipment.
