Abstract
The emergence of Covid-19 pandemic has an impact on changes in the learning process. On of such changes is the lack of attention to the socialization of environmental literacy, which is usually done in schools. Environmental literacy can foster a sense of caring for the environment as students are taught to take actions to minimize environmental damage. In spite of the pandemic, teachers should continue to foster environmental literacy to their students. Thus, this study aims to foster the environmental literacy of elementary school students through the use of used goods. Using experimental research method, the study took samples from fifth grade elementary school students who were randomly selected. Data collection techniques in this research used questionnaires and rubric of skill. The analysis was by inferencing from statistical data using content validity. Students are categorized as having good environmental literacy if they have met several indicators of environmental literacy aspects in the form of cognitive, attitude, and behavioral aspects. The results of this research indicate that the activity of utilizing used goods affects the students’ environmental literacy. The activity of utilizing scraps has a good effect on students because they have psychomotor activities that can reduce the sense of boredom of learning. The most important thing from using used goods is that the student’s environmental literacy continues to develop even though learning takes place online.
