Eight lesson plans were developed , piloted and re -designed over a one year period and then delivered to third graders for a total of eight weeks in a fall semester . The lessons included units on water , air , land , recycling , insects , fish , amphibians , reptiles , birds and mammals . A pre -post test retrospective questionnaire was developed to determine changes in the participant's knowledge , attitudes and behavioral intentions as a result of participating in the program . Results indicate positive shifts in knowledge and changes in environmental attitudes and behavioral intentions . Recommendations were also made for future studies .
