The purpose of this study was to examine how environmental education teachers think about environmental teaching materials of their use in primary and secondary schools. For this purpose, six primary and secondary school teachers were selected for focus group discussion on October 17th, 2005. The discussion of focus group was recorded both on video and audio tapes. Teachers' discussion could be analyzed in the perspectives of two big ideas, 'content selection' and 'content organization and presentation'. The big ideas were categorized into several areas: 1) The idea of 'content selection' was classified into 4 areas such as integration, difficulty level, locality, and timeliness, 2) The idea of 'content organization and presentation' was classified into 4 areas such as learning motivation, teaching and teaming strategy, evaluation method, application of teaching materials. This study provided meaningful ideas, which can be used in developing environmental education materials as well as effective teaching and teaming strategies for school environmental educators.
