The objective of this study is to evoke environmental awareness among secondary school students using different ecological activities. This study focuses on how environmental awareness might lead the students to the protection of nature, and the main goal of the study is to develop behaviors through activities among students for environmental protection. This study is based on a questionnaire conducted on two groups. The first group includes 2 hundred students who were chosen randomly from both state and private schools. The second group includes 50 students who participated in ecological activities in their schools. It was seen that the students in the second group cared more about environmental issues. Thereby, the study yielded that involving students in ecological activities holds an important place in raising their awareness towards environmental protection. This study offers some useful activities that can be carried out at schools to increase sensitivity of students towards environment and its protection.
