A questionnaire was developed and randomly distributed to 76 public high school biology teachers (50% return rate). The questionnaire asked the teachers what activities they used, where in the chronological order environmental education was taught, and what importance they placed on environmental education. The findings revealed positive feelings towards environmental education. A significance was found in comparing age vs. the order that environmental issues were taught in the classroom, and comparing sex vs. the order that environmental issues were taught. It was found that few activities were used in the classroom to help teach environmental education.
