Thinking TREES

Thinking TREES is not prescriptive but rather seeks to encourage thinking and discussion around the issues. Thinking TREES is a primary school resource that will help you embed a development education perspective in the curriculum

Thinking TREES (TT)-the Primary School Resource!

Within the context of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005 - 2014), Thinking Trees: Development, Trees and our Interdependent World is designed for primary school pupils in Ranganna 3, 4, 5 and 6 and seeks to encourage students to explore the importance of trees and of forests in our daily lives. It also stimulates them to think about some of the consequences of the loss of forests and trees and how, each of us can contribute positively to sustainable development.

Thinking Trees is an easy-to-use, curriculum-linked resource that will open the eyes of primary pupils and their teachers. Starting with simple activities such as investigating the many uses of wood in the classroom and home, Thinking Trees asks us to consider the impact of humans on the natural environment. Thinking Trees introduces issues of sustainability, interdependence and global justice in an innovative, appealing and timely way.
