Little Animation for Kids: The Little Earth Charter

Earth Day is April 22.  Elementary age children will really enjoy the Little Earth Charter that lists eight principles for making a better world.  The Earth Charter has been distilled to make it accessible to the younger set.  Clicking on each principle brings up a page that explains what the principle is, a pledge about upholding that principle, and suggested activities that incorporate the principle.  Click on 4Kids on the menu bar to find music, games, stories, and links to more information. This is a great way to introduce Earth Day and protection of the earth to kids.Apr. 22http://www.littleearthcharter.org
