Early Childhood Education / Activities 100 More than to help children learn about and care for the Earth Educate young children about the environment through experience and play. These activities encourage children to develop a sense of wonder, curiosity, and joy for nature. Each chapter focuses on common and important environmental topics— including waste reduction, recycling, air quality, weather, climate change, and energy reduction—and provides information to help you present these topics to children in developmentally appropriate ways. Early Childhood Activities for a Greener Earth will help you excite children, engage families, and encourage your community to be green.
