by ‐ Tags: alternative energy, green living

Whether you want to be a more informed citizen or just want to kill some time before 5 on a Friday afternoon, WegoWise has got you covered. Our readership amongst children is not as high as we would like. Turns out, a lot of children, especially the littlest ones, can't even read at all. But every kid, no matter how small, should know the importance of energy conservation. We put together a list for you. So peruse our best links, give us some feedback and be sure to share some of the info you just gleaned with other interested parties at the parties you are hopefully attending this weekend. Brought to you by DanNateLilyKate and Bert.

  1. Energy Star KIDS - Your friends, and ours, over at Energy Star have a site dedicated to the youngsters who are going to change the world. Their site has games and fun facts to help kids get excited about saving energy. They are currently holding an essay contest!
  2. Kids Energy Zone - The Zone is operated by the people at Touchstone Energy and it is a great resource for the younger crowd. There is information aplenty that can all be accessed through games, color books, crosswords, word searches and more.
  3. Boston GreenFest - Sponsored by the Foundation for a Green Future, the Boston GreenFest is going on right now (August 16-19) at Boston City Hall Plaza. There are films to see, performances to watch, and an entire stage dedicated to kids' events.
  4. Children of the Earth's Awesome Activites - The Children of the Earth site is dedicated to taking kids on "An Adventure in Environmental Education." The whole site is filled with good content but the activities page provides great, eco-friendly fun for kids, teachers and home life. Everyone wins
