Twenty-four activities suitable for outdoor use by elementary school children are outlined. Activities designed to make children aware of their environment include soil painting, burr collecting, insect and pond water collecting, studies of insect galls and field mice, succession studies, and a model of natural selection using dyed toothpicks. A group called "investigations" are simple experimental studies of soil inhabitants, succession of burned areas, railway right-of-way ecology, the effects of modifying plant and animal habitats, and fish behavior. The last group of activities introduces quantitive measurements of soil, and air temperature, soil composition, fish population dynamics, and mapping. Teaching hints are included for each activity. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (AL)
