Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate young children's environmental literacy level and variables that afected their environmental literacy. Of the students, 969 in third grade from big cities, medium sized cities and rural areas participated in this study, and their environmental literacy was measured through 69 questions consisted of 24 items for knowledge, 22 for attitude, 16 for behavior, and 7 for skills with 13 demographic variables. Eighty minutes were given to answer the questions. Statistical analysis was conducted on each of the categories (knowledge, attitude,behavior, skill) that make up environmental literacy and multivariate analysis variance (MANOVA) was also conducted to investigate variables that affect environmental literacy. Results indicated that the correlation between attitude and behavior is the highest. Also, it was found that a demographic variable might affect one, two, or sometimes all categories of the environmental literacy.
