Tool #98: Virtual Forest
Type: Interactive on Environmental Science
Teacher: Lower/Middle Level (Science)
Student Use: Learn about impact of choices on environment
In the Virtual Forest, students learn how their choices in school, at home, in a park and in a store can change the environment. Choices are given for everyday activities (e.g. charging your MP3 player, taking notes in class, cleaning up after an art activity) and the score accumulates for the health of the environment.
