Abstract

Quasi experimental pre-test post-test control group design study was carried-out to find the effectiveness of a sensitization program on knowledge and perception on eco-friendly environment among high school students. The participants were 140 rural higher primary students of 8th and 9th standard. Knowledge questionnaire and perception scale was administered to collect data and Sensitization programme was given using teaching machine and lecture. The data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study found a significant difference in the post-test level of knowledge (‘t’ value is 24.47, p=0.0001) and perception (t’ = 14.43 p=0.00001. Sensitization programme is an effective method to improve the children’s knowledge and perception on eco- friendly environment.
