Meet our special friend JOE, our Just One Earth. Discover what JOE can teach us about living in balance with nature, and with one another.
This highly praised programme uses song, multimedia, games and more that goes beyond green education to holistic character and values education.
See your children smile as they learn to recycle, share, say thank you and become young role models in their own school and home.
Learning to care for our Just One Earth, our community and ourselves requires more than a one off session, but ongoing support. Included in our programmes are materials designed to help teachers, students and their parents make student’s journey with JOE a long lasting one.
Introduced in Meet JOE, the JOE Box is a living toy for students and teachers to carry on their exploration of JOE in the classroom. The JOE Box is a miniature representation of our Just One Earth, containing a section for ocean and beach, rising hills, and living plants that grow out of the Earth.
In the introductory session, students help lay soil in their JOE Box and plant seeds of the plants that will grow in their JOE Box.
Each following session interacts with the class JOE Box to introduce new concepts while contextualising them in existing knowledge – giving children a holistic understanding of the ways our world is interconnected.
Staying in the classroom, the JOE Box becomes a platform from which students can learn about patience, responsibility and care. As a miniature Earth, the JOE Box can be integrated into other lessons to relate topics of nature, environment, and science to something real and tangible that the students have a common experience of.
JOE Activity Book
The JOE Activity Book is a personal book for each student containing activities for students to continue and consolidate their learning of JOE and our community.
For each possible JOE session that WOW Kampung delivers to your school, there are three exercises in the JOE Activity book that students can do in class or at home to further their understanding of how important our Just One Earth is to our own well being.
Family Hand Out
The best learning experiences carry on beyond the classroom to the home and involve the whole family in education.
At the conclusion of each JOE session, an A4 handout is passed to students with information for their family on the session they participated in. Each handout covers three key areas: what we did, why it is important, and how to continue the learning at home.
With these handouts, parents can feel involved in the learning and gain an insight into how the topics covered in our Just One Earth programme are so important to the growth and development of their child.
Each handout provides concrete instructions and examples that the parents can follow at home to continue the lesson and become an active contributor to their child’s growth into a healthy, happy, purposeful young person.
