Snails live in houses too: environmental education for the early years
Snails live in houses too: environmental education for the early years by Sue Elliott and Susan Emmett
As community concern about environmental issues increases, so does awareness of the importance of environmental education for our children. The aim of such education is to provide children with the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to take environmentally responsible actions. Snails live in houses too interprets environmental education in terms of teaching strategies and experiences relevant to the developmental level of young children, and demonstrates how it can and should be integrated into all aspects of the early childhood program. This revised edition will suit early childhood courses both in TAFE colleges and universities, as well as filling the real need of childcare practitioners for environmental education guidelines and experiences.
