Teachers, the Energy Action Team needs you most of all!
The Energy Action Team is designed to educate 3rd-5th grade students and their families about using energy wisely. It’s available at no cost from ComEd, Nicor Gas, Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas as part of a plan to reduce energy use throughout Illinois. The program supports Illinois Academic State Standards and national standards with the educational content presented through various learning styles. Teachers can easily integrate this fun educational enrichment into their classrooms and save energy while they do it!
The online resources for teachers and students include games, classroom lessons, quizzes, assessments and other activities supporting the program’s conservation-themed educational content.
Teachers are also provided access to the 35-minute Energy Action Team video which follows Proton, Pilot and Glurg as they conserve energy, electricity, natural gas and water. The video can be accessed in the classroom or at home, together in class or individually from separate devices.
