Our Growing Planetby: Elizabeth Lener

Journal ArticleDigital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

Children are naturally curious and passionate about taking care of the world around them. To capitalize on these interests, the unit described in this article was the result of a schoolwide theme entitled People and the Planet (Wasserman 1996). The unit had three main parts: human population growth over time; the impact of population growth on Earth and its people; and projects aimed at making positive changes within the local community.
