Self-Earth Ethic (SEE), A Life-Centered K-12 Curriculum Guide for Environmental Education, Level One.
Hart, John W.; Turner, Jessie M.
As the first volume of a set of eight study guides in the field of environmental education, this curriculum guide for teachers utilizes a life-centered approach to enable students to learn about their world and its life processes. Level One is designed to help pupils in kindergarten and grades one and two to understand living things and the needs of living things, as this forms the foundation for subsequent study of man and his relation to his environment. With the theme "Everything is tied to everything else," content material covers: using the senses, discovering living things, the physical environment (air, sun, water, and soil), weather, and the biotic pyramid. A bibliography is provided following each section of study. Together, the series constitutes a K-12 curriculum for the study of the environment. Understandings are divided into study levels in a manner which allows each successive grade to build systematically on the previous learning base. (BL)
