Resumo: This pedagogical and didactic experiment comes under the scope of the experimental sciences and it belongs to the environmental education and health field. The methodology used with a group of 15 preschool children was project work, and it took place in a nursery school in the central inland region of Portugal. The research theme was “My behaviour is healthy and environmentally friendly” and its purpose was to foster the understanding of the sustainability vs. health interrelationship. It was designed in three phases: to motivate the discovery by manipulation, to stimulate the desire to seek knowledge and to systematise learning. Children experimented, their curiosity was stimulated, their conceptions were valued and their individual learning paces respected. The results led us to believe that this methodological choice, with these children, was conducive to raising awareness about environmental sustainability behaviours and their relationship to health. In other words, it endorsed a values-based education.
