Environmental Awareness; An Action Approach.
Wight, Edgar L.; And Others
In the changing world of today, man has created alarming imbalances of nature which threaten all living creatures of the earth. The public is becoming aware that severe measures must be taken to correct these imbalances. Indian people are closely attuned to their lands and resources--it is part of their traditional culture to have close ties with and appreciation for the soil, trees and plants, water, wildlife, clean air, mountains, the sea, and all the beauties of nature. With this kind of appreciation, teachers of Indian children can readily implement activities related to environmental improvement. This booklet was designed to help teachers and students in learning of the relationship of the environment to the human race. Divided into 5 major sections of activities, each activity is classified according to the level for which it is best suited. Symbols such as PRI for primary, INT for intermediate, and JH for junior high designate the level. Included are illustrations of simple experiments that can be conducted in the areas of soil and water; plant life; weather and air; fish, wildlife, and microscopic life; and forests, rangeland, and watersheds.
