'Action' in Review ...


"Action for a cleaner tomorrow" has been a huge supplement for me when it comes to teaching Early Childhood Science Methods. To help me make the topic of the environment be as important as it is, "Action" does the trick! It fills in more than the gaps in the curriculum. It makes the environmental curriculum come alive for the preservice teachers!  

The enthusiasm inspired by "Action" will spill over into their future classrooms!

One of the most valuable resources in the "Action for a cleaner tomorrow" training is the integration of the state department curriculum standards. Useful plans are provided that make use of recyclables. Besides being provided with a wonderful book of plans to use in science and other K-12 classes, other materials (e.g., posters, pencils, etc.) are provided for classroom use.

Teachers from all over the state have benefited from this training for years. Touch one teacher and you have touched all her children.

I have been integrating "Action for a cleaner tomorrow" lesson plans in my curriculum for the past few years. I find that the lessons can be easily integrated into the state standards and expose children to the importance of being stewards of their environment.

I look for ways to sneak in the lessons from viewing videos about how trash is sorted while studying electromagnets, to learning about composting during our animals unit.  Students enjoy the lessons and I love seeing them pass what they have learned to their family and friends.

"Action for a cleaner tomorrow" workshop was very interesting and informative. I learned so much about recycling and how I can integrate it in with what I am teaching. The lessons are fun and exciting. I can’t wait to use this lesson plan book within my own classroom.

In August, our teachers were trained on"Action for a cleaner tomorrow." The lessons have complimented our school-wide recycling program. Action has been a great success helping to raise awareness and understanding of recycling.

"Action for a cleaner tomorrow" is a great tool for recycling professionals to use with schools. This program helps us teach about waste reduction, recycling and litter prevention in the classroom and all the lessons meet the South Carolina teaching standards. "Action" has a ripple effect when students share what they learn with their families, because their actions help improve the entire community. The "Action" curriculum is teaching skills that students will carry into the future as our leaders!
