Abstract: 

As many early childhood professionals make efforts to improve the environmental health and safety of their setting, they also want to educate children about the impact and value of these greener choices. Early Childhood Activities for a Greener Earth helps teachers connect environmental issues with their daily curriculum in a sensitive, developmentally appropriate manner.

This resource includes background information on environmental topics-including waste reduction and recycling, improving air quality, weather and climate change, and energy and toxicity reduction-and one hundred lessons and activities that will excite children, engage families, and encourage communities to be green.
