It’s Active Schools Week in St. Brigid’s.
Here are eight games from the website: Recyclebank,
that don’t need any equipment so they are games that are ‘green’.

‘It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny.
Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. We are made to live together because of the interrelated structure of reality. Did you ever stop to think that you can’t leave for your job in the morning without being dependent on most of the world?
You get up in the morning and go to the bathroom and reach over for the sponge, and that’s handed to you by a Pacific islander.
You reach for a bar of soap, and that’s given to you at the hands of a Frenchman.
And then you go into the kitchen to drink your coffee for the morning, and that’s poured into your cup by a South American.
And maybe you want tea: that’s poured into your cup by a Chinese.
Or maybe you’re desirous of having cocoa for breakfast, and that’s poured into your cup by a West African.
And then you reach over for your toast, and that’s given to you at the hands of an English-speaking farmer, not to mention the baker.
And before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half of the world. This is the way our universe is structured, this is its interrelated quality.
We aren’t going to have peace on earth until we recognize this basic fact of the interrelated structure of all reality’.
Martin Luther King Jr.
There are some great games online.
This one teaches about Food Chains.
We also learned about herbivores, omnivores and carnivores
There are even more educational and interesting games here:
We like working up the levels on this one:
As usual BBC Bitesize has an excellent activity
to help us understand food chains.
Just remember that the video at the end
is only available in the UK.
Also from the BBC is this one:
This one is much more challenging (for Senior Classes really)
but it shows you how complicated a food chain is.
