Environmental Awareness with Online Games

I went to a professional development presented by Keep America Beautiful today. As it turns out, they have an entire curriculum for teaching about waste management, conservation and littering. In addition to hearing about the lessons and ideas in their curriculum, I found out about several cool websites where students can practice their environmental awareness.
At bottlesandcans.com, students deliver recyclable trash from the roadside to the bins across the highway in the easy but fun eco-conscious game.
For a more serious test of eco-awareness, visit EcoKids. At this Canadian site, kids can practice setting up a yard sale or help solve the mystery of the Great Garbage Caper.
And, at Clean Sweep USA, there are virtual comic books for kids to read and learn.
