The guides are designed to be used in any outdoor area by elementary teachers of either handicapped or "normal" children. Te emphasis is on guiding students into our outdoor world, to help them begin to observe, explore, and experiment in outdoor activities. Purpose, objectives, concepts, activities, and resources are described separately for each of the major components of our environment: air, soil, water, plants, animals, and man. Also included are a general comprehensive overview of the six components; an appendix including descriptions of how to build a variety of items useful in observing plants and animals; resources for lead-up and supplemental activities, phonograph records, and bibliography; and a set of sample evaluation instruments.
