Environmental Center for Our Schools, Curriculum Guide, Grades 4,5,6.
Springfield Public Schools, MA.
Included in this curriculum guide are outdoor and environmental study activities for grades four, five and six. The activities are designed to help children appreciate the beauties of the forest, pond, and field, to have them observe the interdependence of living things in each community, and to see the role each member plays in maintaining an ecological balance in the community. Both classroom and on-site activities and suggestions are provided to better coordinate the learning experiences. Where appropriate each activity defines its objective, materials needed, procedure to follow, and discussion questions. Also included is a list of investigations from the classroom laboratory manual which directly relate to Environmental Center for Our Schools (ECOS) activities for that particular grade level. Facilities at Forest Park, Springfield, Massachusetts are utilized in the ECOS project. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (BL)
