This Earth Day, Cook-Illinois (the largest school bus company in the US) has created a fun way to teach kids about environmental issues — in a Mobile Museum. The bus is the newest addition to their Clean Air Club, and will be driving throughout Chicago this week. The bus, pictured to the right, includes interactive exhibits that will show what the sky would look like if everyone drove biodiesel vehicles, a display to show the effect that air pollution has on our lungs, and a “Green Tree” and apples display that will showcase tips on how kids can help the environment. This is a great effort by Cook-Illinois, so if you live in the Chicago area, keep reading to find out where the bus will be stopping near you.
