Pen and Paper
Scouts should make a diary of everything that they use in a single weekday that uses
electronics. They can do this either by reflecting together on the past day, or in advance by
making a note of everything they use throughout the day.
Although the exercise prompts the Scouts to think about this as broadly as they can, you
could follow this up with a discussion as it is likely there are many everyday items they will
not have considered – for example low energy light bulbs, the controller on the central
heating, LED bike lights, radios etc.
