Kid's PACK: Population Awareness Campaign Kit.
Zero Population Growth, Inc., Washington, DC.
This fun and educational kit is designed specifically for elementary students. The "Kid's PACK" (Population Awareness Campaign Kit) entertains and informs children on the environment and human population growth through stories, games, and concrete ideas for making a difference. In three booklets, the "Kid's PACK" offers elementary students materials to educate and empower: students write their own booklets on their "place on the planet," observe the effects of crowding in a home gardening activity, and "catch" pollution around their neighborhoods. After identifying the challenges of environmental protection and population pressures, children learn how to use the "power of the pen" in crafting measures to newspaper and magazine editors of their favorite publications, as well as to their legislators. The "Kid's PACK" includes zany stickers, brainteasing word games, and a pull-out poster of "Amazing Eco Facts and Figures." (AA)
