It is important to be able to instill in children from an early age respect and love for the nature that surrounds them and all the animals that inhabit it since they are fundamental for the functioning of the ecosystem.
This way you will be creating positive ties with your environment, so you can inhabit the planet responsibly. Children should know the importance of caring, recycling, reusing and respecting the environment.
Discovering nature with children.
Children can be amazed to discover that virtually everything, comes from nature. This is a way to encourage the child to take care of the planet earth.
Example: You can teach that books and notebooks come from trees, that toys are made from petroleum material, that some chairs and tables are made from the wood of forest trees, from cotton you can make shirts. there are many other benefits that nature gives us to make equipment, clothes or instruments that we use on a daily basis.
Children will understand how nature through the analysis of their materials provide us with many indispensable things that we use in our day to day, and that brings us great benefits, since we must be aware that thanks to nature and the environment we can inhabit the planet .
Not only would we be awakening in children environmental awareness but also interest in history, technology and innovation issues.
Importance of natural resources.
Human beings have a certain responsibility for the damage we have caused to natural resources, which is why we must inform children about how to care for the environment, but also how to help generate a bigger change.
We must awaken the initiative of how we can help from home or from the classroom, how we can awaken the conscience ecology and think of simple solutions, it is about contributing a grain of sand to the problem of contamination that exists, since there are many people and industries that mistreat the planet.
That we can teach children to awaken the ecological conscience.
- Children must learn to save water, not to leave the tap open for a long time.
- Do not throw garbage in the streets, that’s what garbage cans are for.
- Learn to recycle and reuse at home and in schools.
- Avoid damaging plants, trees or flowers, instead teach them how to grow and care for them.
- Take advantage of natural light and turn off the light in the house when necessary.
- Respect the animals.
- Respect and accept people with their diversities.
We must take care of everything that surrounds us and gives us benefits, such as forests, rivers, beaches, flowers, parks, cities, to mention just a few.
Children should be shown the importance of ecology on the planet earth and in human beings. You should be shown all the options of interacting with nature, that they can ask, and experience, that they feel love and respect.
