This booklet presents an interdisciplinary approach to environmental education. Part 1 concerns environmental study areas. Emphasis is placed on defining environmental study areas, site selection and program planning, and preparing to use the environmental study area. Part II presents instructional activities based on the "strand" approach. This approach consists of five strands or concepts of the environment: variety and similiarities, patterns, interaction and interdependence, continuity and change, evolution and adaptation. Instructional activities for each strand cover art, communications, mathematics, science, and social studies. Selected publications and films are included. (MJM)
