Blue Planet - How Teaching Turns into Action
Jayne Black is a preschool teacher certified with Project WET. Today, she is an environmental educator, taking on the responsibility of educating and empowering the next generation of water stewards.
Last week, we introduced you to preschool educator, Jayne Black. This week, we're introducing you to one of our most popular activities: Blue Planet.
“You can tell children the earth is made up of 71% water, but they have no way of truly understanding that. This activity really hit home how powerful this curriculum is. That's a huge concept for a child to understand, but they got it. And now they're never going to forget it.”
After Jayne's class has gone through the lesson, parents tell her stories of their children coming home and proclaiming,
"We have to take care of our earth! We have to help not pollute our water!"
