To this end the Ministry of Environment has proposed to the school to work on four themes - 'Trees and reforestation', 'Creating a nursery', 'Orchard and Garden "and" Fire-forestales' each teacher to choose which best suits their needs. In this way the Board will make available to schools that enroll a teaching guide, activity book and a CD that compiles all the material and includes interactive activities.
