We currently have this lesson plan on Sustainability in Japan on our waitlist to be built. Join our waitlist for this Vygotsky plan (link in navigation).

It is important to teach sustainability in preschool education as it helps children develop an understanding of the impact of their actions on the environment and encourages them to make responsible choices for the future. This also promotes a sense of global citizenship and empathy towards others and the planet. Preschool learning environments that could be created to teach sustainability include outdoor gardens, recycling stations, and nature walks. These environments provide hands-on experiences for children to learn about the natural world and how to care for it. Teachers can also incorporate sustainable materials and practices into the classroom, such as using recycled paper and turning off lights when not in use. Potential preschool lesson plan ideas for teaching sustainability could include activities such as planting seeds and observing their growth, sorting recyclables, and learning about the importance of reducing waste. Teachers could also incorporate books and videos that teach about environmental conservation and the impact of human actions on the planet. By teaching sustainability in preschool, we can help create a generation of environmentally conscious and responsible citizens
