Environmental Education Guide, Volume 1: An Environmental/Energy Education Primer for Kindergarten through Grade Three, 1981-1984.
Sly, Carolie; Rose, Larry
As one of four volumes in a K-12 series, this teaching guide contains classroom and outdoor activities pertaining to the environment and energy for kindergarten through third grades. The guide was developed based upon the understanding that environmental education can serve as an instructional umbrella covering many topics (conservation, marine education, city planning, population, etc.) and that it is not a specific subject but an interdisciplinary theme. The activities are organized around four major topics: natural environment, built environment, social institutions and decision making, and energy and environmental resource management. Each section begins with a summary of issues related to that topic followed by a listing of major concepts and their associated objectives. One activity is presented to teach each objective (approximately 40). Objectives correspond with those contained in the California "Course of Study" guide for 1981-84. Each activity provides a brief description, the objective, purpose, time, topics, location, materials, lead-up and preparation procedures, and follow-up activities. Appendices list the sources for the activities, California resource agencies, and teaching materials available from these agencies. In the beginning of the guide, a procedure is outlined for planning an environmental education program. (DC)
