Early Childhood Environmental Education: A Hong Kong Example
Lee, John Chi-Kin; Ma, William Hing Tong
Applied Environmental Education and Communication, v5 n2 p83-94 2006
This article describes a university-kindergarten partnership project with teachers in four kindergartens to participate in four three-hour workshops and then to develop their own school-based environmental programs. The four teaching themes of the programs were Animals, Plants, Food and Green Angels. In each kindergarten, a core group of staff was established to oversee the design, implementation and evaluation of the school-based curriculum. After the programs were completed, questionnaire surveys and interviews were undertaken to collect feedback and opinions from teachers and parents on the school-based programs and the perceived changes in environmental attitudes and behaviors of their children. The article concludes with possible suggestions to different stakeholders--government and community, the school and the parent--to enhance the development of early-childhood environmental education in kindergarten. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
