At current count according to http://www.earthhour.org/, 126 countries have registered to take part. That beats last year's count by 38 countries! That's a lot of people sharing in their support and concern for our 1 planet!
In my classroom this week, my 3rd graders wrote pretty dynamic, persuasive paragraphs about getting involved in Earth Houe after viewing some of the Earth Hour Videos. If 9 year olds can get revved up about it, so can you!
What are you going to do for Earth Hour?
If you're not sure, try out one of these ideas:
- Send the video and web site www.earthhour.org around to your family & friends and pass the words
- Stock up on candles and light them up as you knock out all your other lights at 8:30 pm
- Play a game of night time Hide & Seek
- Have a candlelight dinner...perhaps al fresco
- Roast some marshmallows over a bonfire with good friends
- Take a moonlit stroll
- Spend some time in reflection and meditation
- Play boardgames with your family by flashlight
- Go stargazing
- Take a night hike
- Tell ghost stories
- Take time having great conversations and quality time with someone you love
- ...the sky is the limit! Create your own fun!
