Student Preparation Workbook for the Multnomah Outdoor School. Teacher Edition. Revised.
Bohm, Rudy; Cole, Wally
Designed for use by sixth grade teachers in preparing their classes for the Multnomah County (Oregon) Outdoor School experience, the guide to the Student Preparation Workbook provides general information, descriptions, game materials, and answers to the exercises and puzzles. Beginning with an introduction to environmental manners (rules for working in the woods), the guide is divided into four sections, each devoted to a resource area: soil, water, plants, and animals. Each section consists of introductory information, a glossary of terms and words students will be expected to know, and various learning activities and games (e.g., charts, matching and drawing activities, labeling and completing study sheets, bingo games, crossword puzzles, word searches, and word scrambles). The activities address the water cycle, dissolved oxygen, pH (a measurement scale indicating the acidity or alkalinity of a plant or animal environment), the crayfish, water-loving plants and animals, the soil profile, trees, leaves, vertebrates, insects, reptiles and amphibians, birds, mammals, and the ecosystem.
