A Guide for Teaching Conservation and Resource-Use Education in the Schools of Louisiana, Forest Section.
Ware, George; McCollum, Howard P.
These guides for teaching conservation and resource-use education give a sequential treatment of conservation concepts from primary through junior high school grades. There are four sections, each sequential; this guide covers the "Forest" section (others are "Soil and Water,""Minerals" and "Wildlife"). Ten major concepts are arranged in a sequence which is repeated at three levels: primary, intermediate, and junior high. The concepts are "identity,""parts,""life needs,""reproduction,""community,""enemies,""recreation,""wildlife,""conservation," and "utilization." For each level the concept is stated as it applies at that level, then a paragraph of discussion of the concept directed to the teacher is followed by suggested activities for students and a statement of possible outcomes. A glossary of terms is given, and appendices give instructions for making paper by hand, building, stocking and caring for terrariums, and constructing a pegboard model of a forest. (EB)
