Environment Awareness Program Targets UAE School Students
A new awareness program targeting upper and primary school students has been launched by the Environmental Research and Wildlife Development Agency.
The Emirati official news agency (WAM) said the program, entitled “Enviro-Spellathon,” is being sponsored by Shell Abu Dhabi and has been developed in cooperation with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and the Emirates Wildlife Society (EWS).
Citing a press release issued Wednesday by ERWDA, the agency said that the 'Enviro-Spellathon' targets an age range of 7-11 years and involves spelling exercises through which children learn interesting facts and figures about the UAE natural world and the environment.
Each participating child will receive a folder containing lists of words, or passages, with attractive images of animals, plants and environmental information relevant to each level. The student will be given two weeks to study the words and passages at home or at school.
The coordinator teacher of each school will then test the participating students on words and information that they have learned. At the end of the program each student will get a certificate for participating in the program and depending on scores, he will be given a reward for his or her achievement. (Albawaba.com)
