Aquatic Activities for Youth.
Greene, H. David; And Others
Designed to meet the diverse educational needs of youth groups, this aquatic program consists of eight individual lesson units, each devoted to one aspect of the aquatic world. Unit topics include: fish aquariums; raising earthworms; simulation of coastal planning; entomology and water; rope; calculating stream flow; saltwater aquariums; and fish in the diet (providing fish recipes and information on buying/storing fish). Activities in each unit may be done by special interest clubs, school clubs, or in school science classes. In addition, the activities can be used for year-long projects. A short leader's guide is also provided. The guide lists names and types of organizations that may help in developing the program and suggests additional activities to supplement those in the eight units. (JN)
