Description of this Book

Structured as a series of rangers' missions, this book educates Intermediate-age children about the environmental issues facing them today and encourages them to make informed choices on a range of subjects from saving energy and water to using transport, technology and products. The topics are divided thematically into three sections covering a) local New Zealand issues, such as pollution, b) global issues, such as climate change, and c) projects (such as how to make a compost heap or recycle cardboard and plastic into new products). Each topic contains a introduction to the subject, 15-20 suggestions for things they can do to help 'save the world', illustrations, jokes, quotes and website addresses. Each of the first 12 topics also contains an inspirational story about an 'eco hero' who has contributed an outstanding achievement to the environment.Teaching resource notes available from www.mariagill.co.nz
