Environmental Education

At the Centre for Environmental Education in Rotterdam, Netherlands I was responsible for teaching pupils and creating new lessons. Pupils were from different social backgrounds, different levels, and type of schools, including the school for vision & hearing impaired. The lessons were also attended by the bilingual and international schools. Teaching required creative and multi-sccessible lesson plans.

Below are two examples of environmental education projects I developed for primary schools.

Caring for animalsThis environmental education project is intended for pupils in the age of 4-8, guided by a teacher or independently in groups of pupils, Activities can be varied according to the level of the pupils and focusses on insects. The aim is to explain morphology, life cycle, their function in the ecosystem and how pupils can contribute to improve insect populations.
