Our kids can’t solve the big problems of today, like global warming, without understanding what our planet is made of, inside and out. Earth science is the traditional class that introduces our kids to these concepts and the eeBoo game, Earth Science Bingo is an excellent introduction to Earth science but also a great stand-alone game to play on a rainy day.
