|dc.description.abstract||This study investigates the effects on environmental actions of sixth graders of primary school using cartoon and instructional intervention. Seventy-five students were divided into one experimental group and two control groups. They were given a three-week experimental course and assessed by the self-edited ＂Environmental Action Checklist＂ for data collection and analysis. A questionnaire of the ＂Environmental Action Checklist＂ was conducted before and after the courses. A total of 64 valid samples were obtained and discussed by means of the descriptive statistical analysis, independent sample t-test, paired sample t-test, and single-factor
covariate analysis, respectively.
The results indicated that all tested students have a good performance of environmental actions with energy conservation being good and waste reduction being moderate. However, the performances of water and ecological conservation were in between the good and moderate. No significant difference was found in all environmental actions due to the issue of gender with the exception of ＂I will bring
eco-friendly chopsticks with me.＂ in which boys perform better.
Students from the experimental group do not make any significant difference in the changes of environmental actions before and after the intervention of animation and extension courses. Compared with students from the control group, there was also no significant difference found in all tested environmental actions. It could conclude that the courses of cartoon and instructionsl intervention designed in this study did not affect the tested sixth garders in changes of environmental actions. However, significant difference was found in a change of energy conservation action between the boys from the experimental group and that of control group. Especially for “I will set the temperature between 26-28 degrees when I turn on the air conditioner.” the boys from the experimental group have a good performance in change of their behavior. In summary, based on the statistic and analusis results of this research, the tested students poorly performed in environmental actions, such as persuasion, consumption behavior, and ecological management. Therefore, it is proposed to reinforce the above related curricula in the future plan of environmental education and is helpful for enhancing the environmental perceptions and actions in all students of
