Environmental Education Resources

Manuals and games to learn about the environment while having fun

Our Planet Earth

Our Planet EarthOne way or another, the environment includes all of our surroundings: NATURE, SOCIETY (FRIENDS, FAMILY, ACQUAINTANCES…), CULTURE, WORK… Because there are so many of us and we rely on natural resources to live, these resources are beginning to deplete and become polluted. In order to avoid this, we need to get to work!

I want to look after the environment. What can I do to help?

I want to look after the environment. What can I do to help?I Have you ever thought about what happens to the paper or rubbish we throw directly on the floor? Thanks to none other than the actions of nature itself, the rubbish we toss is reduced or eliminated from the natural environment, however, this process can take a while… Hundreds and thousands of years! A very positive action we can take is RECYCLING, and we can do it in all areas of our lives: at school, at home, on holiday, with friends, etc.

Learn through playing!

Listen to and recognise animal sounds or environmental sounds, identifying their origin, and whether or not they are real, etc.
