Xcel Energy is encouraging teachers and students to take action for Earth Day by participating in the School Education program this month. Benefits of participation include:
· A FREE multimedia presentation and brand new Teacher Guide aligned to both Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards and the common core standards for fifth grade.
· Students and teachers each receive a FREE Take Action Kit of products to install with their families and save energy at home.
· Teachers receive two high-quality instructional posters with colorful images and classroom activities.
· Teachers who return brief student surveys about the Take Action Kits will earn classroom mini-grants of $50. The more teachers who participate, the more a school can earn!
The School Education program is available to 5th grade classes in your school free of charge. The program is sponsored by Xcel Energy, and is conducted by National Energy Foundation and AM Conservation Group. Teachers may register immediately. Please visit thinkenergy.org/
