Madison Public Schools, WI. Dept. of Curriculum Development.
This guide was designed to serve as a tool which elementary teachers may use to incorporate basic princples concerning the conservation of all natural resources into their instruction. From the suggestions offered, teachers are encouraged to develop concepts in six major areas: soil, water, minerals, wildlife, plants, and resources--recreational, scenic, and historical. Each section is characterized by a listing of concepts, learning activities, possibilities for correlation with other subject areas, and appropriate materials for three levels: Primary (kindergarten - second grade), Intermediate (grades three - four), and Upper (grades five - six). Additional material and information includes a flow chart of conservation concepts for the three grade levels; teacher and pupil references and suitable audiovisual material; conservation quickies, 25 short teaching aids to create basic understandings of the total environment; a set of maps for reading Wisconsin's landscape; a school forest activity manual; and a guide to recreational sites and activities in the state.
