Henderson, Ernest L.
This manual is a teacher's guide to environmental study activities for intermediate grade students in urban areas. It is divided into four color coded sections: A City Block-An Environmental Design; The Streets of the City; Noise Pollution; and Student Worksheets and Study Guides. Each of these sections presents objectives, generalizations, and procedures for activities. The guide suggests many discussion topics and activities involving the investigation of environmental conditions in the vicinity of the school. These outdoor activities are concerned with land use, physical change, kinds of streets, street planning, traffic, street maintenance, street drainage, loudness of sound, and sounds, noises, and people.
