Teaching Soil and Water Conservation: A Classroom and Field Guide.
Foster, Albert B.; Fox, Adrian C.
Compiled in this booklet are 22 activities designed to develop awareness of the importance of conservation and the wise use of soil and moisture on croplands, grasslands, and woodlands. They have been selected by Soil Conservation Service (SCS) personnel and consultants to show that the way we manage our basic natural resources, soil and water, and their products, is important in determining our present and future welfare. The practical suggestions will aid teachers in carrying out activities and observations in the classroom and out-of-doors, mostly on the school grounds or in the community. Each activity is presented in two parts: a how-to-do-it part and an interpretation. The first is written in a language and style for presentation to students, outlining steps to follow to carry out the activity. The second part, interpretation, gives background information and explanation of procedures where necessary. Numerous pictures and diagrams supplement the narrative material. This guide is recommended for use with "An Outline for Teaching Conservation in Elementary Schools," SE 014 226. (BL)
