Young children in many early childhood settings around the world are demonstrating awareness of their impact on the environment and ways to minimise it. As we near the end of the United Nations Decade for Sustainability —14, it is encouraging to note the marked increase in sustainability initiatives within the early childhood profession on a local, national and global scale.
Despite these changes to curriculum and environmental education, recent surveys in local government services identified that many early childhood educators have expressed a knowledge gap in not only what to teach young children about sustainability, but how to go about teaching it City of Knox, Staff Survey, To investigate this multifaceted dilemma further, researchers Edwards and Cutter-Mackenzie implemented a study through an Australian Research Council Discovery Grant, working with a number of early childhood educators and children using different modes of teaching and learning about sustainability concepts.
In a fascinating dichotomy, although one of the teachers involved in the study had a science degree, she was still hesitant to teach science to young children, and noted that although she had always wanted to talk about recycling with the children, she felt it was too difficult to do so: I have always wanted to do it but I have always found it so challenging … it did actually take me a while to find all the resources and to figure out how I can get it across to them in a simple way because it can get quite complex with all the triangles and all of that … For the purpose of the study, this teacher decided to set up a recycling experience for children, sorting items for the recycling bin, the rubbish bin or the worm farm bucket.
The children were offered this activity three times. The children were filmed during all of these experiences, and then filmed again while watching themselves on video each time with child and parental consentwith the researchers asking the children what they thought they were doing whilst recycling.
At the conclusion of the study, the teacher said she was surprised with the amount of interest and intense engagement the children displayed in these recycling sessions. The teacher also felt increased confidence in how to approach science and sustainability in her teaching, and planned to continue with this method of combining open-ended and modelled teacher activity to form purposeful play.
Purposeful play helped her to have conversations with children that supported intentional teaching about sustainable concepts in practice.
She was especially encouraged by the positive reaction of both the children and their families in this recycling trial. Thinking about intentional teaching and sustainability might mean considering the importance and value children might attach to what they see as work and play.
