Energy Hog, for Classroom Instruction.


The Energy Hog program makes it easy (and fun!) to bring energy education into the classroom. The Energy Hog is a dastardly character that makes learning about energy efficiency and conservation memorable.
Classroom materials are provided to participating educators. In addition, for teachers seeking an unforgettably exciting experience for their students, educators may borrow the Energy Hog mascot costume. Signed legal waiver are required prior to use of the mascot costume.

Program options include:
1. Energy Hog Classroom Materials – include:

The Energy Hog Challenge: Designed for grades 1-6, students learn about energy history, where energy comes from, how we use energy, and why it’s important to conserve. Included are student workbooks and a teacher’s guide with classroom lessons and activities and free Energy Hog bookmarks for participants. Take-home assignments include an age-appropriate home energy audit called the Energy Hog Scavenger Hunt, where students apply what they learned in the classroom to their own homes.
