Planetpals.com Wants You
Planetpals.com is a worthwhile online resource with much to offer the concerned parent, teacher, and child. It is one of hundreds of online environmental resources that seek to inform and it does so in a fun way, using its own cast of characters and other techniques to make environmental education more of a treat and less of a chore.
There is much to be learned by visiting this web site and browsing through its wide array of activities and facts. The site isn’t just for kids- parents can soak up quite a few facts and learn more about environmental issues, conservation, and weather than they ever thought possible. The organization of the site could use some improvement, as it tends to jumble many items/links into a small space. But with a focused effort, you can find what you need.
The planet on which we live needs a certain degree of care and Planetpals.com is a good resource for education and fun. Its activities, factual information, and links to other resources are very useful for concerned parents, teachers, and their children. A good Earth is hard to come by, so educate yourself and your kids on these important matters and help preserve the land on which we live.
