Six Cartoon Adventures About the Environment
Maggie's Earth Adventures presents six free cartoon adventures that teach environmental issues by showing them in the context of a story. Maggie and her dog Dude star in these eco-adventures as they investigate various environmental issues around the world.
For example, in one cartoon, Maggie and Dude uncover the cause of the decline of the oyster and crab populations in the Chesapeake Bay. The story has colonist John Smith traveling forward in time to join Maggie as they fly over the bay and explain the importance of the land surrounding the bay.
In addition to six cartoon adventures, the site also offers a variety of mini-games. Kids can choose to play in English or Spanish.
