An Environmentally Related Program for the First Grade.
Shafer, Angelyn K.
This narrative description of the author's participation in an environmental education program is intended to provide first grade teachers with ideas for incorporating multidisciplinary environmental education into the existing curriculum. Environmental education, within this publication, is broadly conceived. In addition to the more traditional focus on experience with and respect for living things, a variety of attitudes and techniques for humanizing the classroom experience are also discussed. An appendix includes three learning activity packages: 1) a program using cameras to increase environmental awareness; 2) an expression in movement program to enhance awareness of shapes and motion; and, 3) a creative writing activity (for the third grade) that centers around the theme of the pupil in his environment. Each package is outlined in terms of objectives, activities, the author's own experience with the package, and books and materials required. A bibliography of books, films, and other aids for teachers and students is included. (Author/AWW)
