Get ready to go
green! It’s never too early to teach children about the importance of taking
care of the environment they live in. With the exciting and educational lessons
in the Going Green series for Years F–8, your primary students will embrace the
message and adopt sustainable practices that can be used throughout their
lifetimes. What’s more, the series has been revised as of 2014 to assist
Australian primary teachers in incorporating the cross-curriculum priority of
sustainability into their integrated teaching of Australian Curriculum learning
areas, including geography, English, mathematics and science.
This revised Australian edition of Going Green: Years F–2, is packed full
of great ideas for repurposing everyday items in order to teach core curriculum
subjects. Your young students will
enjoy learning how to “reduce, reuse,
recycle” as they use recyclable materials to create learning
activities and crafts. Lesson topics include using recycled containers and lids
to match upper-case letters with lower-case letters, creating a crafty counting
book out of recycled materials, the life cycle of a milk carton, and many more!
Other titles in the
Going Green series include Going Green: Years 3–4, Going
Green: Years 5–6 and Going Green: Years 7–8.
