Teachers' Guide to Outdoor Education, Grade VI.
Fox, Denver C.
The aim of this guide is to aid sixth-grade teachers whose classes participate in the San Diego City and County outdoor education programs. The guide enables the teacher to improve the quality of outdoor education through suggestions for better planning and preparation procedures for the camping experience and for more active student participation during the encampment itself. Ways and means are enumerated by which the outdoor education experience may be extended to add vitality, understanding, and new interests to the regular classroom instructional program. The utilization of a "camp kit," consisting of pictures, maps, pamphlets, and books, in preparation for the outdoor experience, is also described. A related document is RC 003 275. (DA)
