Developing a Sense of Responsibility and Care for the Environment
It is important to cultivate a positive attitude towards the environment in children from a young age. This helps them to recognise their responsibility in protecting the environment. How can you help your children to value and appreciate nature, and understand the importance of being responsible and showing care and respect for the environment and their role in it?
Raise children’s awareness of the need to show care and respect for the environment through a story.
Provide opportunities for children to have direct experiences with the natural world to stimulate their interest and curiosity about living things around them.
Provide opportunities for children to develop an understanding and appreciation of nature as they learn how plants grow.
Show care and respect for living things by releasing the snail back to the garden with the children after they have observed it in class.
Help children develop an appreciation for natural resources by setting up a recycling corner and encouraging them to choose the recycled materials for their art and craft work.
Remind children to save water by turning off the tap when they are rubbing their hands with soap and after handwashing.
Parents can help extend children’s learning beyond the classroom. Encourage them to set achievable goals for their children to demonstrate their care for the environment.
