With this collection of forty-eight fun-filled, science-based environmental activities, kids from eight to eleven explore the world they live in and find ways to make it better. The projects in Eco-Fun cover a range of difficulty and include a mix of scientific experiments to do at home or school, activities that explore kids' own world and real-life ecology projects for their neighborhood or community. They can build a solar panel, make recycled paper, build a worm composter and create a forest ecosystem in a jar. Lively, easy-to-follow illustrations clearly tell kids what to do and show how each activity works.

Recommended by Curriculum Services Canada and is published in partnership with the David Suzuki Foundation.
