Eagle Heights Woods: Man's Use of Land.
Pratt, Cay; Nelson, Redgy
This teacher's guide for use in the elementary grades was prepared as a result of the 1970 Local Materials Workshop on Outdoor Education, Madison, Wisconsin. It develops the concept of a land ethnic as expressed by Aldo Leopold in "A Sand County Almanac". A filmstrip is employed to discover the meaning of several words pertinent to ecology--environment, ecosystem, community, habitat, niche, food chain or web, primary producers, consumers, decomposers, predators, camouflage, and succession. Settings for such discovery include the schoolyard, going to and from school, home, a nearby field, and Eagle Heights Woods. The filmstrip is explained in its entirety, illustrating each frame and its accompanying script. The filmstrip is not included. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (BL)
