The Environmental Education Project Center has developed these guidelines for teaching a unit in environmental studies. It is their intention that the teacher and student cooperatively plan the approach and content to be used during the course of study. In this unit about water, teacher resource information and student material are combined to form a teacher's manual for use in the primary grade levels. Project objectives, behavioral objectives, and pre- and post-test questions introduce the unit sections followed by ideas, actions, and/or activities to develop awareness of water qualities and pollution effects. Major topics of discussion range from uses of water, farmlot drainage, and watershed litter to the effects of sewage on streams and treating wastewater. Field trips emphasizing concepts previously learned are suggested and additional sources of information and materials for both students and teachers are listed. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract for the project "Operation Survival Through Environmental Education." (BL)
