This paper discusses the findings of the survey study among primary school students in Malaysia. This study investigated the level of knowledge and awareness of primary students on the issues related to human habitat and the environment based on qualitative items of questionnaire regarding to their interest, concern and opinion. Conclusions that can be drawn based on this study are: the students will show interest if they are often exposed to a relevant issues including at school, their home and other places they visited. However, the students at this age level, despite showing an interest on the relevant issues, also potentially become bored and not sensitive to such things, if the knowledge on the issues is always conveyed using the same method. Therefore, a creative teaching and learning approach is required to promote students’ interest to learn more about the human habitat and the environment, as well as to produce students with imaginative and innovative thinking.
