Natura 2000 Games - a new methodological teaching aid from Hungary

An excerpt from the Go Natura! Natura 2000 handbook series of the Hungarian Institute for Educational Research and Development is available in English now.

The chapter Natura 2000 Games for green kindergarten and ecoschool teachers of Hungary can be useful for anyone interested in the field of environmental education and sustainability education. Games and selected ideas offer ways to integrate the theme Natura 2000 (a European nature conservation tool system) into the curriculum in multiple ways. On the last page an eco-bingo gives opportunity to practice the English language as well as to realize our environmental consciousness.
