Life-based learning enables children to learn about and actively engage in a sustainable partnership with the living and non-living world.

The focus of World is how humankind can live in harmony with the planet — stewardship of, rather than dominion over, its resources.

Three aspects of World

The World area of life-based learning has three themes.

  1. Plant life
  2. Animal world
  3. The physical world

The interdependence of the three themes is of crucial importance

The underlying concept is a world as it it created by the interdependence of all things living and non-living inhabited by human beings to the advantage and disadvantage of that world and ultimately to the advantage and disadvantage of human life itself.
