Investigate how much energy families use at home

20 Investigating energy usage KS1, KS2, KS3

To improve general awareness and engagement in energy and environmental issues, try extending your Energy Sparks activities to pupils' homes.

For primary school pupils
You could use the attached questionnaire for pupils to investigate their family's approach to saving energy. The questionnaire provides some brief background information on why we should save energy and the Energy Sparks project, and then prompts pupils to look at their energy use at home.  You could  consider creating  an electronic version of the questionnaire using free online survey software such as
or Google forms which is better for analysing your results afterwards.

For secondary school pupils
Your Energy team could collate the responses to the questionnaires, and use the results to help them plan a campaign to influence the wider school community to save energy at home as well as in school.
