Environmental ACTION (Analyze/Consider options/Take action/In/Our/Neighborhoods) answers the need for materials that emphasize personal responsibility and positive action in conservation efforts and other real-world problems. Give students the chance to discover the world around them as they tackle environmental problems, explore issues, and examine the real-life implications of what they learn in the classroom. Presenting a fun, comprehensive approach to environmental science, this series places the emphasis on being personally responsible for the environment as students explore and learn at school, in their own backyards, and in the community.
The program consists of six module sets, which provide training in issue investigation, decision-making, and action skills. School, home, and community become the laboratories for exploration and discovery. Modules can function alone or be grouped. The content is sequenced to help teachers promote awareness of current environmental issues through actual investigations, build knowledge and skills needed to analyze, investigate, and remediate environmental issues, encourage practice in issue resolution, and help students become responsible citizens through active community involvement.
Student learn how to act responsibly concerning the environment by studying the environmental consequences of human decisions; examining how laws, policies, and practices influence the environment; practicing behaviors that help protect the environment; and participating in school and community environmental efforts.
The program is accessible for teachers with little background in science or environmental studies. Each module consists of a Student Edition and a Teacher Resource Guide. Grades 6-12 Student Edition/Water Conservation
