Green Team 2017-2018 

Thank you Fall Green Team for a great beginning of the year. We look forward to working with the Winter and Spring Green Team. 

Eversource Challenge 2018
The Eversource Challenge gives students grade-specific assignments that showcase their energy knowledge with a focus on four core values: Energy Conservation, Energy-Efficient Technologies, Energy Efficiency, Sustainability.

Students from Conant can submit an entry under Mrs. Mastrolia. All entries must be submitted to Mrs. Mastrolia by Friday March 9, 2018 so they can be mailed in. More information about the Eversource Challenge can be found here. 

Kindergarten and Grades 1-2 - Saving Energy Poster
Create a poster that shows how you can help save energy around your house (for instance, turning off a light or TV when you're not using it). Use your imagination and show what you've learned about energy conservation! Posters must be between 11" x 17" and 18" x 24" in size. There is no restriction on tools used (crayons, watercolor, markers, pastels, etc.).

Grade 3 - Limericks
Write two limericks about different ways you can save energy! A limerick is a funny poem that consists of five lines: Lines 1, 2 and 5 have nine syllables and the last words of each line must rhyme, while lines 3 and 4 have six syllables and the last words of each line must rhyme. Your first limerick should be about saving energy in your home, and the second should be about saving energy at school. Provide two limericks on one page. Entries must be typed.

Grade 4 - Short Story
Write a short story about a girl or boy trying to save energy at home. Explain with words and pictures what your main character is doing to make his or her home and family more energy efficient.
Stories should be on 8.5" x 11" paper and be no more than two (2) single pages or one (1) front and back.There is no restriction on tools used.

Grade 5 - Letter to Parents
Write a letter to your parent(s) or guardian(s) challenging them to change their energy habits and become more energy efficient. Bring up topics such as energy conservation (for example, turning off the lights) and using energy-efficient technologies like compact fluorescent light bulbs. Entries must be typed and should be no more than two (2) single pages or one (1) front and back.

Grade 6 - Persuasive Speech
Write a persuasive speech about your recommendations for energy conservation, energy-efficient technologies and clean, renewable energy sources. Make sure to consider both sides of the argument (e.g., energy efficiency saves money on energy / solutions for fixing the budget). Entries must be typed and 500 words or less.
