Our Living Environment
About. Our Living Environment is a study module offering a 'fresh perspective' on studying the environment. It starts by introducing vocabulary and the animals and plants that inhabit ponds, woodlands and compost heaps. Its scientific approach looks behind the obvious to show why the energy, and carbon also, flows through these different environments. Later, the booklet looks at some controversial environmental issues, asking finally about 'the future'.
