This resource booklet explains a multidisciplinary approach to environmental education for the intermediate grades. Its major aim is to make the student aware of what is happening around him as well as being aware of what he is doing to his own surroundings. A three-stage program was utilized consisting of a cooperative learning project aided by an innovative seating arrangement, a study of peoples in other societies, and a "closed week" in the classroom. Each phase is described, with major emphasis on the closed week, designed to simulate Spaceship Earth. A timetable for the first through fifth days of this experiment is compiled together with supplies and equipment available in the classroom, and an explanation of the follow-up activities and evaluation.
