Investigations for a Mobile Environmental Education Laboratory.
Childress, Ronald B.
Envirpnmental investigations in this compilation were developed in conjunction with the establishment of a mobile environmental education laboratory, a demonstration project of the Kingsport (Tennessee) City School System. The 50 activities are divided into five categories: basic resources, environmental problems, living organisms, community relationship, and in-service activities. Within each category, investigations are further sub-divided into lower elementary, upper elementary, and secondary grade levels. Covering a wide range of subjects--air, water, soil, land use, geology, noise, vegetation, animals, forestry, weather, chemical reactions, recycling, population, communities, effects of man, etc., each investigation outlines suggested grade level, physical study area, equipment needed, theme and/or scope of the activity, objectives, procedures to follow, and interpretations or finding based on the research completed. Space is provided for completing data sheets and charts and answering questions. Thus, the manual may be used by both teachers and students, depending on the grade level.
