Henriette's Teaching Model
Creating a bond with nature:
a) Bring the students in contact with nature: choose a tree…the students observe then draw their tree.
b) Do the solo activity, then write a poem which describes their experience.
Awareness and knowledge:
Greenhouse effect experiment, experiment with flowers, with the help of the poster
Organize a mini-debate (or two):
a) Live with my electronic toys vs. a walk in the forest
b) Cut down the forest for a skateboard field vs. preserve the forest
Choose a group project, introduce the Mutants' Circle and the website. Do a follow-up of their behaviour changes.
a) Continue to cultivate the bond with nature
b) Have a corner to post articles to increase their level of understanding on climate change, and discussions to better establish their environmental values.
