We were one of four and were complete with cooperation.

1. 学習設定の理由 
 本校の前に、青戸平和公園の緑が広がっている。秋になると鬱蒼と茸が生えだして、神秘的な森の雰囲気を醸し出している。 児童は公園の林をスケッチするが、基本的に環境学習とは、学校の特色的あるいは地域性のある学習・児童生徒の関心に基づくような学習ではないであろう。人類として、共通的に今の地球環境や森林の状況などを捉え、その問題の解決や探求活動に主体的、創造的に取り組む態度を育成するものである。

1.The reason for the learning setting
 The education is the work which plants a tree for the generation of the future while nourishing a generation of now. The green of Aoto Peace Park is spreading in front of our school. The depression mushroom begins to grow when the autumn comes and is making the atmosphere of the mystic forest. The child did a sketch in the woods at the park.
However, basically, the environment learning is not the learning of a school the characteristic one and it has an area and to learn as based on the interest of the child student. It is the one which brings up the manner which wrestles with the solution of the problem and the search activity, being creative independent-ly, taking the earth environment in now and the situation of the forest and so on common-ly as the human race.
On the other hand, also, it is difficult for the solution of the condition of the worldwide damage and the best to rescue it to be found out - the environment learning is " the learning which doesn't have an answer ".
Therefore, we aim at for us to tell a critical situation in the range to understand as fate collective which makes the child student future earth, to make have " Environment Mind " and deepening feeling about future way of growing. In the art education, beyond the experience which makes a work, I am impressed with the beauty as the appreciation learning from before and I aim at the human being who can act based on it.
In other words, " Environment Mind " is of The Earth to Design. When this is the activity which becomes the core of future art education which tries to design ( the adjustment ) convenience and materialistic life, I am thinking.
