Welcome to a new version of this blog
I have changed positions and for the last year I have been teaching environmental studies so this blog will now document the program, curriculum and projects of the
Lower School Environmental Studies program at the American School in London.
We are based in the Honeypot Lane Garden which is located at the playing fields for the American School in London in Canons Park area of London
I will be posting updates, information and resources that will be helpful for anyone involved in outdoor science or garden education.

Environmental Literacy Principles
Humans and the environment are interconnected and are part of a system. A system is an organized group of related components that form a whole. All actions taken by humans will have consequences in the natural world. It is important to understand the the organization and dynamics of natural systems and to act successfully in daily life on a broad understanding of how people and societies relate to each other and to natural systems, and how they might do so sustainably. Living things need water, air, and resources from the land, and they live in places that have the things they need. Humans use natural resources for everything they do. Things that people do to live comfortably can affect the world around them. But they can make choices that reduce their impacts on the land, water, air, and other living things.
