Teacher Resource Guide, Project ECO.
Ames Public Schools, IA.
More than 100 outdoor education and field science projects are compiled in this teacher's resource book. Designed for use in grades K-9, the activities cover the areas of field taxonomy, laboratory taxonomy, autecology, synecology, adaptation, economic biology, conservation, museum methods, culturing, zoo keeping, gardening, and woodcraft. Each project designates the topic (community relationships, life forms, soils, water, air, fossils, or you in your environment), suggested grade level, locality, activity or problem, background needed, specific objective, anticipated outcomes (concepts), procedure, materials needed, and suggested evaluation. Supplemental activities in art, social studies, language arts, mathematics, and science are listed but not explained in detail together with a large booklist. Teacher responsibilities for preparing field trips and using facilities are also explained and program evaluation questions are suggested. (BL)
