Environmental Science

Thinking about re-structuring in-service teacher professional development (TPD) is not new in either the Indian or the global context. The vision of setting India’s destiny in her classroom articulated in the National Commission of Education Report 1964-66 (NCERT, 1968) shows the nation’s expectations from the classroom. To make the expectation a reality, there have been several efforts made at multiple levels.

With Corona Virus spreading across the world, it has become important for everyone to play their role in stopping it. It's very important to understand infectious disease and Pandemic at this moment, as there's a lot of wrong information flowing around it everywhere. Given below is a list of resources which can be used by teachers in their classroom to understand and also act in halting an epidemic.

India is home to an extraordinary variety of climatic regions, ranging from tropical in the south to temperate in the Himalayan north, where elevated regions receive sustained winter snowfall. The nation's climate is strongly influenced by the Himalayas and The Thar Desert.Though the Tropic of Cancer—the boundary between the tropics and subtropics—passes through the middle of India, the bulk of the country can be regarded as climatically tropical.

The activities in these handbooks developed by Centre For Environmental Education have been made to encourage students to observe and explore their environment; to understand relationships in nature, and between humans and nature; and to learn better how humans are an integral part of the intricate web of life. We believe that learning can be more fun, both for the student and the teacher, when based on real experiences.

This lesson plan is about taking United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals in the classroom. This will foster the essence of global citizenship in the young minds, starting early from the school.

All the lesson plans included in this booklet were developed by ENRE team and tried out (and sometime modified ) by the teachers and children’s groups of ENRE network. Originally these lesson plans were provided to a network of teachers as model lesson plans targeted for the children of class IV-IX in shape of bi-monthly ENRE newsletter ‘Basbhumi (Habitat)’. With the skill of ‘active learning methods’ imparted through our teachers' training, they have tried out each activity with their students in their class or as extra curricular activity for last 2-3 years.

In today's digital world, technology has covered almost all walks of life. It is omnipresent. Hence, the teachers should understand its significance and start getting familiar with it. This is because the coming generations are so smart and techno-savvy than us. If we make an effective use of technology, we can convert the classrooms into better learning places avoiding boredom and simplify the content. It will also empower the teacher to explain the abstract ideas with better visualized manner. So let's gear up and make most out of it!!

"Green Games' is a selection of Environmental Education games-old and new-which have proved to be effective and popular with both adults and children. Some of the games in this manual have been developed by CEE. Some others are adaptations of popular EE games, modified to suit the Indian context. Most games in the manual need little inputs in terms of materials. They are also flexible enough to be played with larger groups of players, like in a school or a college setting.

Topics like Biodiversity and ecosystem are a part of syllabus that has been prepared for environmental science by NCERT for 9th and 10th std students. That can be taught with the help of this module.
