A Board Game that Melts!

Meltdown-featured
I have never taught about global warming in my kindergarten class. Have you? I have not even talked to my own children about how polar bears and other cute animals are losing their homes as a result of global warming. Perhaps because it is an issue that is new to me. After viewing the following video, I realize that as an educator, it is important to teach children about how our world is actually “melting.” It will be our children and our children’s children who will have to solve these problems. It is our job to prepare them. One way of teaching them about the dangers of the melting Arctic, is through a board game that actually “melts!” A german company created it. This short video clip explains it in a snapshot. Enjoy!

  1. Hi, I’m french and I work in Developpement Durable with children. I Search a Meltdown game. I think it’s a very good idea to explain them the “rechauffement climatique” in french. Can you tell me where I could find it or could you send me the rules ? I try to make an artisanal game with ice in my congelor ! Thanks a lot
