Saving Energy: a Lesson for Kids


By Aymeric Maudous.

Teaching  kids about saving energy and the environment is very important issue for us.  We recently stumbled upon the US Energy Information Administration which put together an extremely useful site aimed at teaching kids about saving energy called energy KIDS.  The information is as useful for kids as it is for adults. There are 5 sections that focus on a different theme:

  • What is Energy? With some basics, energy units and various forms of energy.
  • Energy Sources: Renewable and nonrenewable, the science of electricity, Hydrogen and a very interesting Recent Statistics section provides useful facts about US petroleum production and consumption. Fun fact: Did you know for example that Texas produces 1,087,000 barrels of oil/day (and Saudi Arabia, top oil producing country, produces 10,782,000 barrels/day)?
  • Using and Saving Energy: The connection between energy and the environment, where energy like natural gas and electricity come from, and saving energy.
  • History of Energy: Timelines and famous people from Alcorn to Woods
  • Games and Activities: Riddles and puzzles, experiments, quiz and things to do.

The site has tons of additional information about what is energy as well as teaching tools including lesson plans.  You will also find useful energy calculators, a glossary and games.

Check it out and share it with your kids.  We are sure you will learn something along the way… we certainly did!

My three-year-old had a seemingly ‘endless’ runny nose with watery eyes, sneezing and chest congestion. Thanks to your article on homeopathy for babies we were able to naturally treat her condition. She is now perfectly fine and we use those natural remedies on ourselves too when the seasons changes. Thank you very much for your quality articles. — Alexandre
Every time my little girl has her bath, after using your products (we have the entire range) our whole family would comment on how our little ones smells! We all love your products, cannot give enough praise for them. The quality of your articles are also a great resource for the new parents wanting to raise a sustainable baby like us! Much love — Sangeeta, Neutral Bay
Last fall, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Bonjour Baby via a giveaway over at the ecoxpo. They had a great display and hosted a giveaway and I won an organic cotton mini bunny. It was perfect timing too, as my little girl was just born. He loves his new cuddly friend. I haven't gone back to use any other resource platform again. Your articles are very high quality and I love your selection of products too. The Bonjour Baby products are truly amazing! I always look forward to your new articles and products. — Millie, Sydney
Thank you Bonjour Baby, you have done a fantastic job. We discovered you from a friend and you have inspired us to live a bit greener once our little one arrived a few months ago. My sister and I are continuously looking for your new articles, as we want what is best for our bubs. So thank you again for all these quality articles. — Magda and Jenny, Alstonville
I just wanted to let you know that our kanoe has basically saved my life and my marriage. It has changed our lives completely. My daughter now takes at least 3 naps a day! Before I had this Kanoe I was never able to get her to sleep except for when she would fall asleep on me nursing (...) I just wish I had known about it earlier. Thank you for making our life a little easier :) — Megan Williams
I would just like to say how much I love Bonjour Baby! They are really fantastic! I recently emailed some about baby care to some other mums in my parenting group and now my whole parenting group are all devoted Bonjour Baby fans! I’m just so glad your website is available, thank you again and keep up the great work! — Amalia, Wakerley QLD
