101 Environmental Education Activities. Booklet 2--Language Art Activities.
Whitney, Helen, Comp.
This booklet containing 20 language arts activities is the second in the series "101 Environmental Education Activities" produced by the Upper Mississippi River ECO-Center. The description of each activity contains learning objectives, directions, and suggested student evaluation standards. Elementary and intermediate level students expand their vocabularies, learn new descriptive terms, practice spelling, and study poetry as they improve their powers of observation and their sensory awareness. The activities, based on environmental observation and the outdoor education process, include studying modifying and descriptive words, verbs, nouns, opposites, and figures of speech; drama and poetry writing, including haiku; writing and following directions; exploring outdoor sensations; studying plants and animals; and taking accurate field notes. The final project is a school site study. (SB)
