  1. Hello Rebecca! I simply loved your movie I am so glad you take time to do things like this! Oh and to show you I've paid enough attention here are my answers!
    1. 1 second!
    2. heat things and put little Shelly to walk!
    3. Photo-voltaic cells!
    4. Television, radio, computer etc!
    5. renewable! and... environmental friendly!

    I hope I got all the answers correct! Have a great week!

  2. This is so cute! Shelly is adorable. I have a solar-powered lighthouse ornament in my garden. During the day the sun charges it, and at night it lights up with a rotating light. It is the coolest thing in my backyard! I also have a solar-powered (dancing) plastic flower that my mom gave me years ago. I keep it near the window and the leaves bounce up and down. It is so cute, and always makes me think of my mom.

    Here are my answers to the quiz:

    1) One second
    2) Houses and water
    3) Silicon
    4) Run a calculator, a satellite, your Shelly...or my dancing flower and my lighthouse!
    5) Renewable energy, environmentally friendly

    This was a fun post. You are learning wonderful things about caring for our world, and I thank you for sharing them.

  3. Great job on the film Becky! And bravo to Shelly for his performance! Thanks to the two of you, I learned that solar panels are made of silicon. Looking forward to seeing you on your mom's blog :)
