Özet

In this study educational aims appropriate for executing Global Warming project and various activity samples to realize such aims are applied to pre-school children. The study is experimental and is based on data obtained from test and control groups. 5-6 year-old children attending pre-school are randomly assigned to test and control groups of 15 children. The test group is specifically presented with the program prepared for the Global Warming Project while the same subject is presented to the control group with a conventional approach. The data of the children in both test and control groups are measured with a survey, preliminary and post testing. At the preliminary and post testing evaluation the children are also face-to-face presented with a question list. The data were evaluated with appropriate statistical analysis methods and the results were discussed at a debate on what needs to be done to develop the program further. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
