Environment Collection

Author: Jill Morris, Publisher: Phoenix

The Environment Collection is a fascinating and varied collection of material — each item having a connection to some aspect of the environment.

The range of material in The Environment Collection  provides numerous opportunities to develop interesting and valuable lessons and units in a number of learning areas and at the same time give students an interest and awareness of a significant influence on their life.

The Environment Collection is accompanied by a Teacher Resource Book with ideas, activities and approaches to help teachers get the most from using the collection in the classroom.
