The effects of climate change is a subject matter that is often difficult for children to understand, but this global warming board game is the perfect way to teach them about it.

The German science magazine for children GEOlino has created what is called, ‘Meltdown -- the first board game that melts.’ The goal of the game is to get the family of polar bears to the mainland before the ice melts. The miniature ice bergs are placed at the top of a sponge that soaks up the melted ice. The game utilizes actual ice to simulate the current environmental hardships that are happening around the world.

The integration of global warming into a board game is just another way for environmentalists, scientists and everyday global citizens to educate people around them about the impact of global warming.
