Product Description
In What Does It Mean To Be Green?, author Rana DiOrio explores the myriad realms in which children can develop an understanding of how to protect the Earth and its treasured natural resources.

From there the book addresses more serious topics and offers a springboard for teachers to develop children’s exploration of what it means to be “green,” including making conscious decisions to:
- Conserve natural resources such as water and energy
- Use alternate forms of transportation that limit pollution emissions
- Choose reusable packaging for carrying items from place to place
- Recycle a wealth of materials ranging from beverage containers to gently used clothing
- Repurpose available resources including food scraps and rain water
- Spread the word about being green

Classroom activities in this instructional unit facilitate children’s consideration of how they may (or may not!) be protecting the earth’s resources in their day-to-day experiences, as well as specific actions they can take to be more “green” throughout their lives. These activities draw on students’ experiences as individuals, as well as their experiences as members of a family, a classroom, a school, and a community. The instructional activities also enable teachers to cultivate children’s character development through the pillars of community, mindfulness, and responsibility.
