The Ollie Suite of Programs is an interactive environmental education initiative that encourages children, their parents, teachers, and community groups to appreciate their connection to the natural world and to understand their own impact on the environment.

Units of Work have been developed to fit educational conditions in the USA, UK and Australia. The units are designed on the enquiry learning process and incorporate a range of forms - including analysis, problem solving, discovery and creative activities – to be used both in the classroom and in the community. The units fit into a number of teaching styles and lend themselves to student directed learning. The Units of Work can be downloaded for $8.95 each.

The Australian Curriculum v5.0 Sustainability

The Australian Curriculum v5.0 Sustainability | sustainability | Scoop.it

Sustainability addresses the ongoing capacity of Earth to maintain all life.

Sustainable patterns of living meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Actions to improve sustainability are both individual and collective endeavours shared across local and global communities. They necessitate a renewed and balanced approach to the way humans interact with each other and the environment.

Education for sustainability develops the knowledge, skills, values and world views necessary for people to act in ways that contribute to more sustainable patterns of living. It enables individuals and communities to reflect on ways of interpreting and engaging with the world.  Sustainability education is futures-oriented, focusing on protecting environments and creating a more ecologically and socially just world through informed action. Actions that support more sustainable patterns of living require consideration of environmental, social, cultural and economic systems and their interdependence

There are some excellent teacher resources located at this site. In total, there are 14 units of work - each focusing on a particular aspect of sustainable living. Clicking on "Introduction to carbon capture and storage" I found an array of ideas and activities for the primary and secondary years. The units have been developed to provide resources and a wealth of cross-curricula activities. Scientic inquiry and an action based approach to learning is supported. Seven inquiry stages contain choices so that teachers can select, adapt, add to or modify their appraoch to suit their students and their local needs. These units are superbly constructed and certainly worth bookmarking.

As most of my followers on my #PLN (Personal Learning Network) http://www.scoop.it/t/21st-century-learning-and-teaching?q=PLN  would have realized, I am in BIG favor of proactive thinking and also on critical thinking, both go hand in hand anyway, and I use they mostly for Cyber-Security and IT-Security. BUT they are also a BIG value for Education and Environment, a MUST read and FOLLOW!!!
