Environmental Education of Grade 4 Pupils in Bicol University Integrated Laboratory School

Publisher: Bicol University
Abstract

Today's children will become tomorrow's leaders, and as their form of guidance, it is our prime concern to provide them with educational experiences that are valuable to them. Children, as they are, do not possess adequate knowledge about environmental issues. The main goal of environmental education is to educate children as environmentally literate individuals who can actively participate in activities related to the environment and solve environmental problems. With the pressing problems the world is facing today, it is just right to start educating the young about environmental issues. Using the mixed descriptive-evaluated method of research, the study aimed to assess the environmental education of Grade 4 pupils of Bicol University Integrated Laboratory School, develop and implement an EE program, identify the level of acceptability of the EE program, and assess the environmental education of the pupils after the implementation of the program. Data were gathered through pretest and posttest, focus group discussion, and questionnaires to assess the environmental education of the primary pupils. Findings revealed that the pupils lack awareness of environmental concepts and are moderately competent in environmental skills. The level of acceptability of the EE program was high among the stakeholders. The environmental education of the Grade 4 pupils was enhanced and developed after the implementation of the EE program. Implementation of the EE program must be sustained.
