101 Environmental Education Activities. Booklet 1--Art and Music Activities.
Whitney, Helen, Comp.
First of a series of 6 publications containing environmental education activities, this booklet by the Upper Mississippi River ECO-Center describes 12 environmentally-based art and music activities for elementary and intermediate grades. Each activity description contains objectives, preparation, materials, directions, student evaluation, and variations where appropriate. Eight art projects teach basic art concepts, the artistic use of natural objects and throw-aways, materials combination, aesthetics, and texture awareness by means of the following outdoor oriented activities: dried material arrangements, sand castings, sand paintings, tracings, observations of nature, drawing with natural objects, and bur sculpture. The four music activities--music in the study of animals, music made from articles found in nature, original songs, and selections pertaining to outdoor activities and sounds--teach the uses and history of various instruments and an awareness of rhythm.
