Written in non-academic language, this work demystifies concepts relating to ecology and sustainable development at a time when these ideas are being introduced into the primary school curriculum. It provides a wide range of illustrative examples which reflect the everyday experiences of teachers and children. This book is organized around the questions that teachers are likely to need answered, arranged in three main sections: what is eco-literacy? why teach it? how does it fit into what we do now?; connections, cycles in nature, renewable energy, ethical issues; convincing others, using without using up, human need and human greed, money, the six Rs. By embracing important social, scientific, economic and political ideas from the rest of the curriculum, this book shows how eco-literacy can be promoted through the existing curriculum structure, linking science, citizenship, geography, health education, literacy and ICT.
