Environmental Warrior Tasks

Instructions overview:

STEM Ginger Education is running free projects: ‘The Environmental Warriors’.  These projects provide opportunities to get in touch with nature, with language and with other people. Children from different countries around the globe are taking part:

  • Do task A, task B, task C and/or task D. Each task requires different amounts of input and output: Task A is simple, task B involves conducting surveys or questionnaires, task C is based on an NGO’s work and task D requires a lot of learner autonomy.
  • Post up findings.
  • Find out about other groups’ projects in the Environmental Warrior’s magazine.
  • Learn about each other: be inquisitive and ask questions in the forum.
  • Let us know about your favourite project and say why you like it.
