Increasing Environmental Awareness of Kindergarten Children by Using Puppets

Auther : Prof. Azizah Kh. Yateem - Dr. Fatimah A. Dashti

This study aims at investigating the effect of using puppets to raise Kuwaiti kindergarten children's environmental awareness. A closed-ended questionnaire together with interviews have been utilized by the researchers for collecting the data. The sample of the study consisted of three groups (two experimental groups, and one control group). Findings showed that Group 1 (using puppets and stories) has scored higher compared to Group 2 (using stories only) and Group 3 (the control group). Also, the results disclosed that age and gender had no effects upon the children's environmental awareness. However, teachers' interviews unfolded that children, throughout their activities, behaved positively towards the environment. As such, the children's interviews showed that they enjoyed retelling the same stories when using puppets. In conclusion, the study came out with some recommendations signifying that kindergarten teachers are urged to use non-digital media, such as puppets and stories, to enhance positive children's learning process. Further, the environmental education program, with all its dimensions (knowledge, attitudes, and skills) should be a required course offered at teachers' preparation institutions. The environmental education program at kindergartens' curricula must emphasize and acquire children knowledge, attitudes, and skills.
