Minneapolis Independent School District 275, Minn.
These six booklets in the "Give Earth a Chance Series" are titled, "Dirty Air,""Trash is Taking Over,""Sounds and Silence,""Pesticides are Perilous,""Tragedy in the Laundromat," and "Troublesome Tail Pipes." The booklets are suitable for elementary use, and are intended to stimulate discussion and activities related to various forms of pollution. Each booklet begins with a story in which the main characters encounter a pollution problem; an investigation or study to evaluate a problem in the community follows. The stories involve the characters in actual field work, collecting and analyzing data in such studies as air pollution measurement, detergent studies, trash measurement, etc. The stories serve as a model for actual class activities, and many questions and problems are left unexplored, but are presented to stimulate further investigation. Many suggestions are made for student activities. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (PR)
