All Around You, An Environmental Study Guide.
Bureau of Land Management (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.
An understanding of the basic environmental interrelationships and problems, the development of investigative and problem solving skills, and individual motivation to help solve environmental problems are the objectives of these learning activities, designed for upper elementary and junior high grades. Nature and ecological relationships are stressed in the three sections: (1) Awareness, (2) The Urban Ecosystem, and (3) Nature's Ecosystem. Teacher's Pages, accompanying each section, provide perspectives on the subject content. Activities begin in the classroom and move outside to the schoolyard, the town, and natural or rural areas. They require finding answers to questions--through practical investigation, through laboratory and library research, and through talking with knowledgeable people. Appendices offer a vocabulary of environmental terms, two bibliographies--one for young readers and one for advanced readers, and organizations to contact for assistance with environmental studies.
