Bazar, Ronald M.; Dehr, Roma
Even though the condition of the planet is a serious subject, becoming ecologically aware and active can be fun. This workbook provides ecologically conscious-raising activities that children can do at home or with others. A series of worksheets guides students through eight activities including: (1) assessing community resources and environmental problems concerning water, sewage, garbage, air, food, and land; (2) collecting information on local recycling depots, environmental groups, and government agencies; (3) writing effective letters as a way to educate and influence people in politics, business, and the media; (4) reviewing 50 individual actions that could help save the planet; (5) reviewing 50 group actions that could help save the planet; (6) setting up an ecology action club; (7) organizing an ecology action project; and (8) completing an "Ecology Quiz" using a provided dictionary of 147 words related to environmental problems.
