Welcome to our Virtual Eco Den!
As you are probably already aware, we at
Carnaross NS pride ourselves in being an ultra
green school. We are currently working towards
Green Flag and are constantly looking for
new ways to promote a greener way of living in a
fun, innovative and informative way.
Two years ago our sixth Class published a book
called Eco Eddie and His Bionic Blue Bin. This
book told the story of a little green alien called
Eco Eddie, who visited Planet Earth from an ultra
green planet far away in another galaxy! Eddie
travelled around Earth in his Bionic Blue Bin
assessing our ability to manage our waste,
conserve water and energy , travel in an
environmentally friendly way, promote bio-
diversity and lots more.
The book was full of catchy rhymes, beautiful
illustrations, helpful green hints and fascinating
The County council gifted all green schools in Co
Meath with a copy of the book, Eco Eddie was also
bought by the County library and over 350 books
were sold altogether. (This year we will have a
limited number of books in the school if anyone
would like to buy one...... €10 per book)
Eco Eddie is now our Green School Mascot ......
and is keeping an eye on us all !!!!!
(We are sure you have bumped into him on the
corridor ..... he seem to like Ms Tynan’s room !)
Enter this year’s sixth class with another great
idea to keep us all on our very green toes!
Introducing ........... ECO EDDIE’S QUIZ QUEST
This year you can print off your very own copy of
this Eco board game- inspired by the Eco Eddie
book but with lots more. It has been designed
specifically by us- sixth class - to merge the two
areas of CHANCE and KNOWLEDGE. (Snakes and
Ladders meets Trivial pursuit).
As you might have heard ......we have a particular
interest in green issues and of course quizzes!
We spent weeks in the compu-library (ECO – DEN)
researching these WORLD and CONSERVATION
based questions, devising ECO REWARDS and
PENALTIES , designing an attractive and fun board
game that can be enjoyed by all – Young and all!
All you need to do is print off the board / suitable
quiz cards (3 levels – Easy / Medium / Difficult)
and Mat / Eco penalties and Rewards / Rules
.....grab a dice and a few counters and away you
go................. having fun playing with your
friends or family while learning valuable
information about the world and environmental
We hope enjoy it!!!!!!!!
Remember ......Eco Eddie and .....BIO BETTY ( his
new charming girlfriend ) are watching!!!!!
