Outdoor Human Relations Program, 1979-80: Fifth Grade [And] Teacher's Guide.
Prepared for an outdoor education program that features day trips to a rural camp in Ohio, this guide stresses environmental education and interpersonal skills. Written for grade five, the guide contains a student handbook for camp activities followed by a brief section for teachers. The introductory section of the student handbook states the program goals and provides a camp map, the schedule and rules, and brief descriptions of local Indian tribes. The remainder of the student section provides background information and instructions for 15 outdoor activities including bird watching, canoeing, using a compass, outdoor cooking, group problem solving, pond life study, a ropes course, cross country skiing, and nature study. The pond life unit includes a simple explanation of pond ecology, drawings to aid in identifying plant and animal life, and a page for student notes and sketches. Illustrations, diagrams, and worksheets are provided for each activity. The teacher's portion of the guide states the classroom teacher's responsibilities in the outdoor program, lists films and games that can be used to prepare for and follow-up camp activities, and provide teaching suggestions and behavioral objectives for two camp activities: pond life study and birdwatching.
