This environmental education workbook is aimed at helping kindergarten through 6th-grade teachers and contains hands-on activities directly targeted toward a particular age group, with equal distribution to each grade. Subject area descriptions and several multicultural activities are also included.

Topics covered include: nature study and discovery; ecology including habitat, food chains and food webs, succession, plant study, seed dispersal, biodiversity, life cycles, and adaptation; pollution including water, wetlands, soil, air pollution, and global warming; and resource abuse including human population, solid waste, and solar energy.
