Halloween Heroes Teaches Kids About Recycling
Halloween Heroes is a free iPad app in which students try to collect recyclable materials. The game is designed to help students identify recyclable materials and compostable materials. In the game students go through haunted houses and walk streets to find discarded pumpkins and other Halloween leftovers. Students earn coins for collecting recyclable materials. As a reward for collecting recyclable materials students get to create Halloween costumes from recycled cardboard and other collected materials.
Halloween Heroes could be a fun little activity to use as part of lesson on recycling. The game’s context of Halloween might remind students when they’re out trick o’ treating to not litter.
