The Elementary Years
Hands-on Learning in Grades K - 5
Edited by Tim Grant and Gail Littlejohn
There are many books of lesson plans about nature, ecology, and sustainability, but sadly, most of them have nothing to do with nature or the outdoors! Teaching Green is a delightful resource for educators and students alike, because it emphasizes bringing classes outdoors!
Teaching Green - The Elementary Years is designed for anyone working with young people in grades kindergarten to five, whether in schools or non-formal education settings. It offers fifty kid-tested teaching strategies that promote interdisciplinary hands-on learning about natural systems and fosters critical thinking about environmental issues, both local and global. The book includes background information and instructions for practical projects and activities on numerous topics. Rich illustrations and a curriculum index make this book of contributions from over sixty educators from across North America appealing to a wide range of teachers, educators and parents seeking innovative ideas for incorporating green themes into their programs. 256 pages. New Society Publishers. 2005. ISBN: 9780865715349.
