200 Outdoor Science Activities, A Classroom Extension.
Ontario Teachers' Federation, Toronto.
To encourage teachers to use the out-of-doors in their teaching, this booklet has been prepared by the Ontario Teachers' Federation. It reviews basic approaches to out-of-doors instruction, types of field trips, teacher training and sources of instructional assistance, pre-planning and follow-up for a field trip, and points to consider in evaluation. Following this are 200 outdoor science activities, each of which allows direct exposure to material things out-of-doors so pupils may gain an appreciation of their environment and an understanding of ecological relationships. Animals, birds, geology, insects, meteorology, physical science, plant life, snow, temperature, and trees are the topics of study. Each activity is briefly described and coded for unique environment or activity area (stream, marsh, open field, school year, woodlot, all areas). Concluding information lists resource books for both teachers and students in many areas of natural resources. (BL)
