Designed to familiarize Oklahoma students with their environment by providing opportunities for exploration, investigation, and evaluation, this outdoor education guide contains suggested activities to be used as a starting point to arouse the interest and curiosity of students through direct observation and investigation. As an additional teaching aid, science-related words which may be new to a student's vocabulary have been underscored and are followed by a guide to pronunciation. Chapter 1 describes the geology and natural history of Oklahoma. Chapter 2 discusses Oklahoma's water resources. Chapter 3 identifies the state's recreational facilities. Chapter 4 discusses energy consumption and conservation. Chapter 5 describes various aspects of environmental health. The activity sections of each chapter state the concept to be taught, the purpose of teaching the concept, instructional materials to be used, teaching procedure, and questions to consider. Appendixes include a glossary of scientific words, teacher aids, an annotated list of films and filmstrips, a list of references and resources, and an evaluation sheet to be completed by teachers.
