A fun and educational reference to learn about the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling, to increase awareness and concern for the environment among school aged children.
The hard fact of today’s world is that global warming and deforestation are taking their toll on the health of our planet. Garbage buildups and energy consumption created from the purchasing of new products is a major contributor to global warming. It takes resources to manufacture and transport all products, and even those made from recycles materials. It is better to buy a green product than not, but buying nothing at all is better than buying green. There are of course exceptions. A perfect example is an old appliance or vehicle which is extremely energy inefficient. Buying new, more energy efficient models, such as Energy Star appliances, would most likely save resources in the long term.
A great way to cut back on the millions of tons of garbage and waste that humans produce every year is to practice the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. These little actions, if practiced by all of us, can make a big difference in improving the environment and making the earth a healthier and more beautiful place.
Take a look at some of these environmental educational resources that we came across for teachers and families.
Teacher’s Resources and Guides:
According to various studies and journals such as The International Journal of Axiology, the best way to promote awareness for environmental issues and promote environmentally responsible behaviors is through an increase in environmental education. Actual hands on and ‘seeing it for themselves’ type projects were proven very effective. Being assigned minor or major environmental projects not only help students generate various solutions to environmental issues - which build on their creative problem solving, decision making, and cooperative working abilities - but it also assists in becoming aware of the conditions which led to the current state of the environment. Additionally, students’ awareness and respect for nature increased as did their knowledge, vales, and attitudes toward the environment.
"I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand.”
Middle School and High School:
For middle school and high school students, it is not sufficient to ‘tell’ students about ecology. Students must experience a curriculum which allows them to discover how they interact with the environment themselves. Only then will meaningful beliefs and values be developed.
