Eco Elves’ Assistants
This lesson engages students in saving the Eco-Elves from Destruction in order to restore ecological order. Students will realize what energy is and where we can get it from. They will learn about energy use patterns and issues of sustainability surrounding our use of energy. Students will learn about waste management and recycling.
Time Required: 5-6 hours
The activity shall be conducted in a forest or a park, on an uneven terrain. The person who leads the activity and the assistants shall wear eco-elves clothes.
It is important for the participants to identify with their roles.
The stages are tests, which the participants have to pass. While explaining the rules of tasks, it is important to refer to the general story, in which it is interlaced. At the stages where assistants are not needed, the rules are attached to the panels which are placed in visible places. Because children have been divided into three groups, it is important to pay attention to them to walk separately. One may determine the three routes in different colours, depending on the group’s symbol.

"The lesson is a little hard to follow as it has been translated into English. It has a number of stations with some good activities." (Posted By: Kathy Worobec)
