Learning Snapshot: Enviro-Stories

Love Our Lakes Enviro-Stories

The Love Our Lakes Enviro-Stories Program was run with primary schools from around the Gippsland Lakes region in 2013-2015 and engaged students in writing and illustrating their own storybooks about the lakes.

Enviro-Stories LogoEnviro-Stories, established by PeeKdesigns consultants in 2009, combines literacy, science and sustainability learning into a program that produces school readers which have been written and illustrated by kids, for kids. This program has the added advantage of being aligned to core curriculum outcomes. For teachers who want to go that extra mile, students can gain confidence in public speaking as they promote their books to their school, a sister/brother school and/or the community.

Through inspiring local literacy, the Enviro-Stories goal is to help connect students with their local environment (such as a farm, bushland, school, beach, community, the list is endless) and then support the writing of a narrative that will engage and/or educate other students.
