Hello, it is yours truly, Jenny from ThingsThatWeDo.com and it is really hot outside today but I am glad that summer is here. You can do lots of activities during the summer. Here are some summer tips:
1. When it’s hot outside, go to another place inside that is cooler. Going to another place that is cooler is more energy efficient because you are using the air conditioning that other people are using and it’s more energy efficient than using the air conditioning in your own home with few people in it.
2. Try a fan. Using a fan saves much more energy than air conditioning because it’s smaller and doesn’t use as much energy.
3. Stay safe. During the summer, you have to drink a lot of water because when you’re outside in the heat, you can get dehydrated. This is because you sweat a lot and all the water comes out of your body. If you don’t drink enough water, you’ll dehydrate. Also, wear a hat and put on sunscreen. The sun’s rays are powerful and can damage your skin which can lead to skin cancer. When you wear a hat, it protects your face and sunscreen protects the rest of your body if you’re wearing short sleeves and shorts. Also, try wearing sunglasses. The UV rays are really high and can damage your eyes. Stay in the shade so that the sun doesn’t get on you too much especially during the hottest times of the day.
4. Fun summer activities. When it is not too hot outside, you should go outside and play. You can do many activities like swimming, water balloon fights, and play fun sports like soccer or lacrosse. If it’s really hot, then you can go indoors and go to places like museums, movies, and sometimes you can go to a fair (but that’s not indoors!).
Bye and I hope you have a great summer!
