Week 4 - Cool off in Fan Hall

June 21 - 25

It’s been a hot summer at Camp Save-a-Watt. It’s time to cool off in Fan Hall with an ice cold drink or ice cream. We learned last week how we can save energy and warm up with heat from the sun. This week, we’ll learn how to keep cool and save energy with fans.

Do you remember what you learned last week? Can you recall any vocabulary from the Sunny Point lesson? You’re doing a great job!

At Fan Hall, we can remember fans keep people cool. So, turn on a fan when you want to cool down, but turn it off when you are no longer using it.

This week you’ll need these supplies to complete the camp craft.

  • Paper
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Scissors
  • Glue drops or tape
  • Markers and crayons
