As our planet is considerably polluted and people live under threat of ecological disaster that can bring to destruction, the importance of environmental education can’t be ignored. Saving Earth from contamination we care about humankind and forthcoming generations. It is up to us what to do if we want to protect the globe from devastation. But what can we do? Not all people are able to participate in the environmental related programs or have professional skills to solve problems of this kind. I by no way urge you to give up your work and start some social activity. Sometimes it is enough just to provide your children with knowledge about nature and environmental challenges. Eco education develops sensitivity to such issues and gives your growing children concern for the environment. The awareness of natural processes contributes to environmental education as well. To make eco education exciting you can apply to iPhone games.
One of such iPhone games is Three Trees that teaches your child to understand how powers of world influence the growth of trees. Addicting process of trees growing will give much fun to kids and let them learn about the importance of sun, air and water. The balanced work of these forces brings to success while your score is growing. The task of the player is to keep this balance and protect trees from extra exposure of water, sun or air that can make the conditions not appropriate for vegetation. In this case the game will be over.
Let’s Go Chipper is another iPhone game application for nature-lovers. Information about nature and animals are perceived easily by the kids thanks to cool graphics and interesting adventures of Chipper, an inquisitive squirrel. The children do not even notice that they are taught, getting valuable knowledge in a playful form.
