dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to observe if providing an alternative teaching method of environmental education would allow students in a rural northern Peruvian elementary school (I.E. 10020° - Zaña1, Lambayeque) to retain the information better. Currently teachers are using traditional styles that do not promote an active learning environment. This theory was tested by integrating active learning methods through environmental education, which included starting an environmental club and having students start community engaged projects such as a tree nursery and a compost pile. Results showed that students did retain information better through active learning methods and adopting new teaching styles shows promise in the future.en_US
