Abstract: Description: The Manual for the Educational PC Game on Children's Environmental Health is a CD game to sensitize children about the environment. It is an information pack on various environmental issues presented in an enjoyable and challenging way that follows the play-way principle of learning. The game intends to make the children understand various environmental problems and also to make them aware of possible solutions. It addresses the main environmental factors that affect health in the three settings where children live, learn and play: home, school and the community. In most cases, the player needs to identify wrong doings and by clicking on them, obtains the correct response either in shape of a written comment on the screen, or in the shape of a factsheet, which is printable. The latter is also done to allow teachers use this resource as teaching material. The following pages will show some of the screens used in the game, along with parts of the texts that are linked to the different settings. ENVIRO was developed in 2004 for WHO by HRIDAY SHAN, an Indian NGO working with schoolchildren in 220 schools in New Delhi, India. Weblink to HRIDAY SHAN: http://www.hridayshan.org/
