Outdoor Human Relations Program, 1979-80: Sixth Grade [And] Teacher's Guide.
Environmental education and interpersonal skills are stressed in this guide for an outdoor education program that features day trips to a rural camp in Ohio. Written for grade six, the guide contains a student handbook for camp activities followed by a brief section for teachers. The student handbook begins with the program goals, a map of the camp, the schedule and rules, and brief descriptions of local Indian tribes. The remainder of the student section contains background information and instructions for 14 outdoor activities including art, birdwatching, building a camp shelter, canoeing, compass orienteering, outdoor cooking, nature walks, rock identification, cross country skiing, trapping, weather forecasting, and a ropes course. Illustrations, diagrams, and worksheets are provided with each activity. The teacher's portion of the guide states the classroom teacher's responsibilities in the outdoor program, lists films and games to supplement the camp program, and provides teaching suggestions for three outdoor activities: weather study, an art project using natural pigments, and bird watching. Behavioral objectives are included for each activity along with lists of equipment and supplies and suggestions for preparatory and follow-up work in the classroom. (JH)
