A new and Difficult Question for Schools TODAY:
How do teachers talk to young children about the environmental issues of the day in a way which avoids fear while instilling hope?
We think we have a great answer that you and your pupils will LOVE
TREEMENDOUS, an eco puppet show for 6 to 12 year olds.
The action involves saving a threatened woodland where local kids love to play.
A passionate climate scientist and a well informed dog give vital information about ‘ecocide’ (the destruction of the environment), the policeman is convinced it is a crime, football fan Jim is ready for action while Mr Big Business has a change of heart and becomes a ‘new man’.
The story is one of hope: that things can change for the better.
We can all help to protect the Earth.
TREEMENDOUS offers a very unusual learning opportunity: a serious environmental theme imparted in a light and fun way by some very engaging characters.
