Science Trips, Guide to Environmental Resources in New York City.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY.
Utilizing city resources as a supplement to the elementary school science curriculum is the goal of this guide for elementary teachers. It is designed to extend the walls of the classroom by illustrating educational resources, facilities, and exhibits available in zoos, museums, botanical gardens, aquariums, and open parks within New York City. For each grade level, kindergarten through grade six, activities are suggested which can be done at these centers together with follow-up activities for specific study trips. A chapter on resource agencies presents brief descriptions of eight facilities, educational services offered, trip arrangements, and simplified maps. Although activities and trips correlate with units of the regular science curriculum for the New York City elementary schools, similar activities could be carried out in other areas. (BL)
