Some Problems for the Teacher Useful as a Basis for Planning Lessons in Science-Conservation.
Busch, Phyllis S.
This manual was prepared for elementary school teachers as part of The Science Project Related to Upgrading Conservation Education (Project S.P.R.U.C.E.). The introduction emphasizes the importance of an integrated approach to environmental education, and lists some research findings important in planning instruction. A chart shows related understandings from science and social studies keyed to grade level. Nine problem areas are chosen, and in each area two problems are suggested for investigation or discussion at each grade level. Problem areas are: the concept of change; plants; animals; our growing bodies; air, water, weather; earth and its composition; solar system and beyond; and matter and energy. Most of the problems lead students to outdoor investigations. The work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (EB)
