What Can I Teach My Young Child about the Environment?
ACCESS ERIC, Rockville, MD.
This brochure provides information about environmental education for parents of young children by discussing a rationale for early awareness of our relationship to the environment. Also included is a discussion of the importance of the development of positive attitudes and feelings toward the natural environment. In order to encourage parents to begin environmental discussions and activities with their children, five recommendations are made. The recommendations are to begin with simple experiences, provide frequent positive experiences outdoors, focus on experiencing rather than teaching, demonstrate a personal interest in and enjoyment of the natural world, and model caring and respect for the natural world. Contains 10 references. (DDR)
