How would you define what can be a project? Are there criteria that can guide teachers?
The criteria and most significant words for defining projects is contained in the following statement:
Students are required to take Action to enhance the environment, to communicate to others about the environment or to demonstrate the wise and sustainable use of resources that make up that environment.
Examples of possible projects:
-Hallway displays on nature themes
-Schoolyard litter pick-up
-Share songs on the environment
-Recycling and reusing common objects to make bird feeders
