This is an area of learning that is far more important to today’s children than they are yet aware. It involves learning how to sustain the viability of life on earth as we know it.
Creating Wonder and Sustainability in Action are two excellent resources in this field. Also, the Learn About Our Green Earth series offers sustainability ideas and activities from early childhood educators and includes structured lesson plans, learning objectives, lists of relevant materials and books, plus preparation and assessment advice. Finger plays, poems and songs are also in the mix.
