Abstract: 

“Saturday Chores” is a set of three FREE interactive computer games that teach about household wastes and the environment. The three “Saturday chores” — Trash Sort, Smart Shopping, Yard Chores — take players to different locations to learn about recycling, packaging, waste reduction and household hazardous wastes.
The software is targeted for students in grades 3 - 5, but can be enjoyed by individuals of all ages.
Games are available in Macintosh or Windows versions. Either format requires 8MB or more of computer memory (RAM).
Installation diskettes are sent out on loan and returned to the OEA.
