25 Projects for Eco Explorers

Product Description

Though the daily news is filled with reports of climate change, severe weather, environmental distress, and endangered species, children’s librarians and educators might be uncertain how to incorporate these topics into their current curriculum. This handy resource offers an ideal solution, presenting more than two dozen ready-to-use projects on environmental topics that can be integrated into K-5 educational lesson plans and library programming for children aged 4-10. Starting with a representative picture book as a foundation, children are guided through each topic using a hands-on project that reinforces learning. Whether they’re in the classroom or library, kids will feel excited and engaged as they explore such topics as

  • honeybees, loggerhead turtles, mountain gorillas, polar bears, and other animals;
  • environments like coral reefs, estuaries, and the Galápagos Islands;
  • wildfires, hurricanes, and tornadoes;
  • composting, gardens, seeds, and the farm to table movement; and
  • garbage, recycling, renewable energy, water conservation, and Earth Day.

Complete with detailed information about each topic, including sections that explore interesting related facts, this book will activate children’s curiosity and appreciation for the world we live in.
