This booklet describes an elementary school program at Anstey Latimer Primary School in Leicestershire, England, that used the natural environment as the focus for its studies. Students were 7 to eleven years old, and each class had two or three ages grouped together. Students were allowed to pursue whatever projects interested them. The projects described, with commentary by both authors, are: (1) bones, for a start--independent study by one student; (2) a qualified failure--a study of molds that failed because it was teacher-initiated and dominated; (3) animals and animals--study of animal development and life in the classroom; (4) shells; (5) a rock snowball; (6) stamps; (7) the stream table; (8) the near environment--study of the natural environment of the town; (9) away from the here and now--a student-initiated writing project; and (10) field trips. The stream table transcript and a list of classroom equipment are provided in appendices. (KM)
