Week 2 - Enjoy the waters of Firefly Lake

June 13 - 17

The waters of Firefly and Butterfly Lake are nice for this summer weather! Last week, we learned about electricity and things in our homes that use electricity.

This week we will learn about lights. We use lights every day, and at Firefly and Butterfly Lake we’ll learn new ways to save electricity with simple changes at home. Click on the activities below to learn more. These supplies are needed for this week’s activities:

  • Plastic grocery bag or small garbage bag
