Abstract


The primary aim of the Environmental Education since its initial appearance and throughout the previous decades has been the formation of ecological awareness from early ages. So far, most of the International Conferences have been highlighting the fact that Environmental Education should be introduced since preschool age. The Project Method constitutes a much different educational approach in comparison with the traditional educational methods, which have been implemented throughout the previous years. It is mainly characterized by its student-centered nature, the more active role attributed to the person undergoing education and, among others, the mutual collaboration between the children and the educator so as for the desired outcome to be achieved. The aim of this article is to propose a project for pupils of preschool age under the theme of “The Forest”. All its successive stages (from the introductory to the presentation-announcement stage) are analyzed by means of activities appropriate for children of preschool age and therefore, can easily and readily be realized by them.
