Goody Green: Awesome Website for Kids
If you teach kids the importance of conserving energy at an early age they may be more likely to adopt simple practices that can really help our environment. For great ideas and simple ways to get kids involved, log onto Energy Star Kids! It’s an interactive website created by Energy Star (a joint program of the EPA and Department of Energy devoted to helping Americans save money and energy) that is F-U-N! It’s chock full of great activities that are sure to get kids excited about making a difference by doing their part. I really love the "You Can Make Big Changes" section (right), where kids click on different stars to learn about simple ways to save on energy right in their own bedroom. Also really clever are the "Energy Stars" – a group of energy-efficient superheros that are out to "conquer the world of waste". Kids meet Laptop Larry, Bubbles, Bulby, Celene Flannagan and Teley in just a few clicks!
