Methods for use by teachers of elementary-school-age children in utilizing outdoor experiences in the study of various subjects are presented in this guide. Learning activities are described in 3 units: (1) language arts, in which students are stimulated to communicate ideas they have about the natural environment and to understand their relationship to it; (2) maps and compasses, in which children learn the skills necessary to finding their way; and (3) soils, in which children learn how necessary is soil to survival. These activities are divided into lead-up activities, outdoor activities, and follow-up activities. Additional information for use by the teacher is also included in this document funded by the Title III Elementary and Secondary Education Act. (PS)
