Module 3: Life Around Us

How can we teach students about their relationships with, and responsibilities to, life on Earth?

This module focuses on the living beings that we share the world with, and the duty of care that we have to them. It is divided into four sections, each containing information regarding different ecosystems. These include mangroves, beaches, coral reefs and school gardens. 

This resource is part of the Schools for a Healthy Environment programme, which also includes the following modules: ‘Ourselves’, ‘Earth’, ‘Resources from the Environment’, ‘Interdependence’, and ‘Science and Technology’.

These modules are designed to supplement teachers of Environmental Studies in schools or educators who are facilitating environmental clubs. Each manual includes instructions for classroom activities, sheets for teachers to help with lesson planning, as well as resource sheets for students to use in the classroom. They feature clear links to relevant areas of the curriculum, and use an inquiry model for learning, where students have greater responsibility for their own learning and develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
