    To earth Rangers I can not do the trivia challenge for some reason! Maybe it is because I am on an iPad! So please tell me what to do!

    Hi there,

    I understand you’re having trouble completing the Trivia Challenge. I would suggest trying to complete it on a computer, rather than an iPad. If you’re still having trouble with it on a computer please email us a screen shot of the error (to: info@earthrangers.com).

    I hope this helps, and keep up the amazing earth-saving work!

    All the best,
    Ranger Liz

    Hi Ranger! the Earth Day Trivia Challenge isn’t as interactive as some of our newer quizzes. For the Earth Day Trivia Challenge all you do is read the questions, and pick answers. Then use your mouse to highlight the blank space after it says “Find the answer here by highlighting the next three lines with your mouse…”. To highlight the answer just triple click on the blank space.
