The “Integration of Active Learning and energy monitoring with School Curriculum” project has been reviewed and results of its implementation are presented. The project was executed by agreement with European Commission Intelligent Energy – Europe Agency, with partners from 14 European countries. The Active Learning toolbox with a number of activity sheets for fun and engaging activities within six topics was developed. The activities have been tried and tested by selected Lithuanian and European schools – teachers and children from 14 different countries. The schools’ energy monitoring was described in more detail. The tables with pupils’ introduction data on a special Internet page are shown. The schools’ monitoring possibilities and results of energy consumption are presented and discussed. The diagrams of dependence of schools’ energy consumption on outside temperature are compared. The specific energy consumption of the Lithuanian schools that participated in the Active Learning project are shown and analysed.
