1. aBout the Flip Chart:
This Flip Chart is designed to be used by teachers and facilitators during relevant schooland/or Environment Club activities.The Flip Chart consists of 2 sections:1. Environment 2. Biodiversity.Each section contains background information which should be read out to students.The sections also include activities relevant to that topic. There are suggested times allocatedto each activity to help you plan the lesson.
• On the front of each page is the illustration, visible so the students can nd a context for
the discussion. The front of the page also contains diagrams for the activities.
• On the back of the pages is a BACKGROUND FOR TEACHERS, which provides you
with information to support the lesson. You may want to use some of the facts in your
discussion. Also on the back of pages are the discussion points which you should read out
to stimulate class discussion.
To make teaching easier, each page has a key based on the following elements:
This refers to discussion points that should be read out and discussed with studentsThis icon refers to information that needs to be recorded in the student’s notebook
Refers to handouts that should be given to studentsObservations that students can make continuously in and outside of school time
2. BeFore You start:
• Before the class, the teacher should read and familiarize themselves with the Flip Chart.• Ensure you have all the materials you need to conduct the lesson.• Organise the students around the Flip Chart, ideally seated in a semi circle. Ensure they all
can see the Flip Chart clearly.
3. during the Class:
• Allow the students time to look at the picture page, and then share some of the relevant
theory with the group.
• Make the activity as enjoyable and practical as possible – students remember more when
they feel happy.
• Try to get everyone to participate. If they are observing in one activity ensure they aremore actively involved in the next activity.
