In these challenging times SEAI can offer some suggestions on activities for our students. Kids can do these at home and hopefully they will have some fun doing them!
Climate SOS - Download the book
The Super Energy Activists Ireland are four kids (and one dog) who are finding out about sustainable energy and protecting the environment. Unfortunately their arch-nemesis Max Siphon and his sidekick Guzzler are determined to stop them!
This book links to the primary science curriculum as well as SPHE and literacy. Your students can download the free e-book or PDF version to read to home. The book is also available in Irish.
Teachers can order a copy to keep and class sets are available from local libraries.
Creative Illustration Workshop
Join Climate SOS illustrator Alan Nolan as he shows you how to draw Guzzler and Sparkie. Then, complete your own comic strip. Children can do this at home as part of an art lesson. This workshops has received great feedback so far.
