Project Environment:Liberty Bay
Our web site, is fun and educational, not just for Liberty Bay but for kids and their parents all around the world. Many people don't understand how the ecosystem works so Project Environment: Liberty Bay will show them how we can make a difference and "put the parts together" to protect our waters. It will teach them how whole watersheds must be 'balanced' and are really interdependent parts of the whole ecosystem and how we are part of that picture. There are valuable resources and kids' activities throughout the individual pages and links back to the subjects of special interest. If someone wants to learn more about starfish for instance, we take them to a really neat site with everything you ever wanted to know about starfish. If someone is doing a report and needs more information about saltwater, gardening, fish and wildlife, salmon, pollution prevention, or marine life we link them to 'hot' places to learn more. Many of the links are to kids' pages with really great games which educate even younger children and are fun at any age. The 'salmon life cycle game' is one we made up which can be interactive online with questions that reward the player with entertaining animated .gifs while teaching them about salmon. The game board is made up of four pieces which must be printed out and the game pieces are colorful illustrated types of salmon which they can move around the game board. When using Windows Internet Explorer, each link plays an instrument or birdsong when the mouse hovers over it and another when it is selected. An orchestral musical score plays in the background and both are part of the "orchestrate" changes theme of our subject.
