Our Only Earth
A Framework for Geographical Problem Solving (Set of 7 books)
Both humanity and Mother Earth have suffered greatly from human insensitivity. Not only are we rapidly depleting the planet’s resources and polluting its air, land and water, we also waste our financial resources on destructive expenditures.
The Our Only Earth series features seven books targeting seven world problems: tropical deforestation, air pollution, poverty/hunger/overpopulation, war, endangered species, oceans and our energy crisis. Each book informs students on the issue and then empowers them to take action.
Each book includes fact cards (accelerated learning activity), a student handbook with overview of the global problem, a kinaesthetic classroom activity, a geography activity, self-directed activity, scavenger hunt and summit journal, and a teacher's guide. This integrated curriculum explores real-life issues, culminating in a summit at which students seek solutions to global problems and create action plans. This versatile program is ideal for Years 7–10 and as a format for community and regional forums.
Titles in the Our Only Earth series include Rainforests at Risk, Troubled Skies, Global Poverty, World at War, Endangered Species, Energy Crisis and Ocean Pollution.
