Earth Day

EarthDay2016Earth Day 2016 is coming up on the 22nd April! This is a great opportunity to get children involved in thinking about how we can save the planet, what is causing environmental problems and what they can do to help. We have already shared a set of links but there is also a whole set of games being shared by the Technology Rocks website that I would like to share with you now.

The second game down, Save Energy, Save the Earth, looks great for primary schools. It will not play on mobile devices but will be great on computers and laptops. Firstly it looks at some very normal ways to save the planet and follows with a game that is too quick for me 😉



Plastic Island provides a very nasty message about the junk in the sea but it is shared in a fun song and it would be good to use as the basis for an Earth Day 2016 assembly – children could all join in with the song within a few seconds!

Fun Brain offers this Sorting and Recycling Game: 

Most of the games offered on the Technology Rocks site are suitable for primary school children. Nevertheless, it is worth checking them out before use as one or two will be too old. Nonetheless, there is a really useful set of links available there.
