Activities for Studying Megalopolis, Grade Level 4-8. Environmental Education Series, Bulletin No. 247-H.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD.
This bulletin is one in a series of environmental education activity guides for grades K-12, developed and field-tested by teachers in the Montgomery County (Maryland) Public Schools. Primarily for use in the middle grades four through six, the guides are not intended to constitute complete units in themselves. They are, rather, a compilation of activities considered appropriate for particular environmental studies. In this guide about the megalopolis, for grades four through eight, the 31 activities are divided into three categories: Analysis of Residential Communities, Identifying Characteristics of Commercial/Industrial Areas, and Identifying Patterns of City Growth and Land Use. Each activity includes the instructional objective, procedures to follow, and materials required. A student evaluation sheet follows each category and the bulletin concludes with a list of suggested discussion questions. Related documents in the series are SE 015 885 through SE 015 890 and SE 015 892 through SE 015 893. (BL)
