Eco-Curriculum Review for the title
Co-workers in Creation: First Steps in Ecology

This is the brief report format.
More detailed reports are also available for this title.

Short Description:   A five-day vacation church school program for grades K-6.
Long Description:   Co-workers in Creation is a creative approach to introducing elementary aged children to the wonders of Godīs world and their responsibility as caretakers of it. An emphasis is placed on the positive contributions we can make so that the children are not overwhelmed by the enormity of the worldīs environmental problems. Designed for a five-day vacation church school, this program can be adapted for any number of settings.

The five session themes are: "Exploring Godīs Wonder-full World", "Water Polution Solutions", "Somethingīs In the Air", "Haste Makes Waste", and "An Earth Day Celebration". These themes are developed creatively through stories, discussion, outdoor exploration, drama, games, crafts, music, worship, guided meditations, experiments, and writing activities.
