From games in 32 languages, postcards and a space where children can put up stories related to the environment, to signing up with clubs, etc., there is much for children to do here. The layout is messy but colourful, and the site is updated frequently, featuring even a forum to discuss the Copenhagen summit.
Suitable for children aged 7 and above
This website has interactive animation that explains the causes of the greenhouse effect. Divided into six scenes, a child can move to the next level as one set of explanation finishes. Your child can also take a quiz on global warming and go back to the main site to read more about climate change.

An interactive game, where your child will have to move the character in different situations and make eco-friendly choices as he/she goes along.
Suitable for children aged 7 and above
From 12 really important things you can do to help stop global warming to taking a crossword puzzle after reading their guide, the website uses cartoons to interest children in the topic.
Suitable for children aged 6 and above
The site has 10 interactive games. One of them teaches children how to reduce the use of energy around the house. Once the children have understood the link between global warming and efficient energy use, they can play this game.
Suitable for children aged 8 and above
This is an excellent site for showing children animated movies on a variety of subjects. The movie on global warming gets a definite thumbs up. To view all the movies, however, you need to subscribe.
Suitable for children aged 8 and above
The music, songs and commentary at the site are enjoyable, and children will not be bored. Who knew hippos could be such effective teachers?
