Studies of environmental education show that students do not lack concern for the environment, they lack knowledge. The Wood Magic materials are designed to help school teachers teach children about environmental science, particularly wood science and forestry. The activities engage the students in doing, reflecting, and applying wood science to their daily world. These materials present factual information in an entertaining, engaging, and interactive way.
