After a long day at school and many hours spent each night completing homework, the last thing a child probably wants to do is learn. So what better way to engage kids in learning more about green energy than to make it fun? Here are three excellent websites that I recommend.
The Planet Saver Challenge (http://www.ceprojects.com/planetsavers/)
Last spring, the Constellation Energy’s Projects & Services Group launched the Planet Saver Challenge site to educate kids living in public housing communities about the positive impact that they can make through water and energy conservation.
Kids Saving Energy (http://www.eere.energy.gov/kids/index.html)
The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE)created a colorful and captivating site full of games, tips, and facts for kids to learn more about energy conservation.
Energy Kids (http://www.eia.doe.gov/kids/index.cfm)
The U.S. Energy Information Administration offers a wide array of information for parents and teachers to share with children.
