We learned about how 50 years ago, people used much less electricity than we do today! In the United States alone, the electricity being used is almost FOUR times as much as it was back in 1950! Cray!
It totally makes sense, though! Every body has all these electronic devices and appliances! And they have to run off of something!
Because our school is trying to "Go Green", it was really helpful to see an example of how wasteful we are with things like electricity!
And now my classmates and I are coming up with our own great ideas of how we can save electricity! We are going to share them with the school! Turn off lights when you leave a room, unplug lamps and other things when not in use, lower thermostat in the room, and open the blinds for extra light!
Did I mention Miss Gregory is the best teacher EVER?!?!
