This is a great new resource that provides a selection of poems, lesson plans and worksheets, designed to be used by Key Stage 2 teachers in literacy lessons. The poems and lesson plans are based on a variety of environmental issues, such as recycling, dramatic weather changes and environmental disasters (like oil spills). The book contains 24 lessons with cross-curricular links to support learning in other subject areas. Their interest coincides with the need for schools to raise awareness of environmental concerns and to become more sustainable organisations.
