First Follow Nature, Kit II.
Developing pupils' awareness of their environment, learning to distinguish between what is pleasant and unpleasant, and examining acts of man to determine which are destructive and which are in harmony with nature are the purposes of Scholastic's Earth Corps Environmental Study Kits for Grades 1-6. This kit explores in depth the reasons some environments are pleasant and others unpleasant. Included in the instructional materials are: (1) student activity books with reading matter, illustrations, written and creative work; (2) a teacher's guide with suggestions for page by page use of the student booklet, background information, teaching procedures, discussion questions, and related projects; (3) twelve transparencies helping to develop the concept of what an environment is. Six illustrate different parts of man's environment-his home, neighborhood, city, region, continent, and earth-and six show various environments of plants and animals and their interdependence; (4) twenty black and white photos which contrast the beautiful and ugly, the inspiring and depressing; (5) a large, two-sided poster, "This Land is Your Land," pointing out choices for good or ill that citizens must make; (6) a 7 inch LP record with five folksongs, each relating to a major program concept; and (7) twenty-four individual song sheets containing words of the songs on the record. A related document is Kit I, Look Around You. (BL)
