Recycle City Can Help Kids Learn About All Things Recycling
I found this great little “game” today online after doing some searches based on the keyword “recycling,” as I often do. It seems that whether or not it was intended as a learning tool for children, it’s probably a terrific tool to do just that. Educating young children early and often about recycling and environmental responsibility seems like the kind of effort that pays gigantic dividends later on.
“Welcome to Recycle City! There’s lots to do here – people and places to visit and plenty of ways to explore how the city’s residents recycle, reduce, and reuse waste.” The small image above is actually the map — an interactive area known as Recycle City, where you can click on any section of the town, and continue to delve deeper both physically and conceptually, all the while learning more and more facts about recycling. For instance, click on the “Garage” — and learn about how recycling relates to cars, car fluids like oil, and general mechanic issues.
In Recycle City, participants can create their own Recycle City Scavenger Hunt or go to the Activities area and see other ways you can explore Recycle City. Brought to you by the Environmental Protection Agency.
