Sustainable Living Bk 2 Ages 11-14 Cover
This integrated programme will equip your students with the skills they need to consider how they can live sustainably and how, once they make green choices, it will affect everything they do. Book 1 emphasises what students can do to make a difference locally ñ in their home, school and community. Book 2 moves to a global perspective while still focusing on how to make a difference. There are activities for pairs, groups and the whole class and each lesson concludes with an action that will include the community. Instructions are designed to be appropriate at age level, with more teacher involvement and cooperative work in Book 1 and independent inquiry projects in Book 2. Also included are literacy activities to complement the lessons in the first half of each book.
