dc.description.abstract This paper examines the implications of using the Shona folktale as a tool and method for teaching environmental education (EE) which asserts that the folktale is a very effective means in teaching EE since it instructs while entertaining to enable learners to see all the concepts of the environment. These are the biophysical, the social, the political and economic aspects. Through participation in the folktale, learners are also able to bring out the possible environmental risks, crises and challenges surrounding an environmental issue; and they can also learn the importance of the application of environmental impact assessments (EIAs). en_US
