Description

The aim of this topical resource is to provide teachers of senior primary and junior secondary students with material about “saving the environment” in a practical way, suitable for the students to actually use. Students learn by doing, especially if they are interested in what they are doing and they can see the point of it. Let’s face it, the Earth is in a mess: the climate is changing too fast, the levels of inequity and inequality in wealth are growing, habitats for animals and plants are disappearing, natural landscapes are being modified beyond recognition, and waste litters everywhere – all of these are related to people’s actions and inactions.

That’s where this book comes in. It provides specific things that students can do and changes they can make which require only a minimum amount of time and effort, but, set within a background of facts and ideas, can be very beneficial in combination not only to the environment, but also to their education. In the school curriculum, these practical actions can be tied into subject areas such as the social sciences, science, maths, geography, and environmental studies.

Specific learning areas include:

  • Recall and application of knowledge
  • Understanding societal values
  • Communication
  • Numeracy
  • Problem solving
  • Decision making
  • Research techniques
  • Group and class discussions
