Soil and Water Conservation Society
The Soil and Water Conservation Society has produced numerous educational cartoon booklets on environmental themes. The comic books are geared for approximately 8- to 14-year-old children. Developed by a team of teachers and environmental experts, these booklets are easy to use and require little preparation time. Having already been enjoyed by over 25 million young people throughout North America, these booklets are a great source for many hands-on activities. In addition, they are multidisciplinary, with uses in language arts, social studies, math, health, and science classes.
