Turn off your electricity to celebrate Earth Hour 2014 -- 8:30-9:30 p.m. local time.
This international event, organized by the World Wildlife Fund, urges individuals, businesses, and governments to turn their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change. Encourage your students to participate and discuss ways to make a difference beyond those 60 minutes.
Check out the Science NetLinks Earth Hour collection for more information and for resources that focus on energy conservation and global climate change. Students will learn about light pollution, the lifespan of human-made products, and how energy sources affect our environment and our budget.
