Our Natural Heritage: A Handbook for Teachers [and] Student Worksheets.
Harker, Donald F., Jr.; And Others
Activities to help students in grades 4-6 learn about Kentucky's natural heritage are provided in three sections. Part I offers lesson plans to supplement "Thunder At Middle Ground," a four-part childrens' television series which explores Kentucky's precious natural areas. The four programs focus on the five major natural systems in Kentucky, the deterioration of these systems, thoughtless human impact, and the improvement of environmental quality through individual action. For each program, the handbook provides an introductory quote, a program description, student objectives, and a series of activities. Each activity includes the objective, materials list, notes to teacher, worksheets for duplication, and suggestions for other activities. Part II contains activities to accompany a poster and descriptions of every species of plants and animals (36) on the poster. The final part presents outdoor activities related to soil, microhabitats, ponds, animal behavior, and maps and compass. Background information and resources are in appendices. (DC)
