Let's Power Down!

Having no power for over 15 hours really gives someone a lot of time to think!

While in the dark without cable, internet, computer and cell phone I had an idea for a history lesson for children.

While teaching about the light bulb being invented you should have a historic week. During this week you would need to:

1. Turn off all lights

      This will help the students see just how big of an impact electricity and the light bulb has had on our country

2. No electronics in the classroom this week!

       This will allow the children to see how children learned before there was all this technology around. This might even allow them to appreciate what they have now.


I cannot wait to do this for an entire week with my class! I would love to use candle light to teach during this week but I do not think the school would approve of it. I would try and talk to them and maybe the board to explain why. If not then I can find an alternative to the candles.


  1. I HATE having no power.

    I write a blog which I have entitled “Accordingtothebook” and I’d like to invite you to follow it. I’m your newest follower.

    1. Yes no power stinks! But at the same time it really makes you thankful for everything we do have! Thanks for the follow!
