This is a link to a booklet which is essential reading for teachers in the field of Environmental education aka Education for Sustainability - entitled Environmental Education Activities for Primary Schools (UNESCO - UNEP).
What impresses you about this booklet is its sheer size and the range of topics and activities that it covers - from Wind Energy (creating mock gadgets and models) to Habitats and Wildlife.
What distinguishes Converse Conserve from other sustainability ideas sites is that we wish to encourage children and young people to get involved in their education projects rather than sitting back and being spoon-fed. We don't believe in EfS simply following a 'curriculum of environmental learning' as this can be dull, didactic and too narrow.
At Converse Conserve, we believe education has to be both 'informational' and 'inspirational' noting all the causal drivers that bear on human behaviour: intellectual, functional, moral, sensual, emotional, psychic, sub-conscious drivers. We go further and want older pupils to be involved in creating learning activities for younger students in a way that students feel inspired, and enlivened to act by their engagement with the material.
In the meantime, here is a fun cartoon sourced from Wikimedia commons dating back to 1943 promoting car-pooling obviously at a time of 'fuel rationing'.
