We take an active role in educating British Columbia’s next generation about energy solutions, safety and conservation as part of their daily lives. Delivered together with teachers, FortisBC employee volunteers and the BC Lions, our classroom-ready programs help teach students from kindergarten to high school to be smart about energy.
Energy Leaders free lesson plans for kindergarten to grade 12 tell the BC energy story and help students develop energy literacy: where natural gas and electricity comes from, how to conserve it and how to be safe around it.
Developed by teachers, for teachers, lessons touch on social studies, science and language arts and align with BC’s new curriculum:
- inquiry based
- hands-on learning
- Indigenous Peoples’ principles of learning
- core competencies
- teaching strategies and routines
Distance learning lesson plans
To support both parents and teachers in the new home-based, remote learning environment we’ve adapted our free ready-to-use lesson plans for grades one to 12.
New! Distance learning lesson plans and select regular lesson plan materials for grades one to 12 are now also available in French.

Energy Champions is presented by FortisBC and the BC Lions to get kids excited about saving energy and share the importance of environmental responsibility.
