An Ecology Unit developed by fourth and fifth grade teachers in Pennsylvania is presented in this guide. It is composed of two sections. The first is divided into six levels based on reading abilities. Each level is further subdivided into several phases representing topics studied in the seven-week unit: Introduction to Ecology, Cities, Field and Forest, Animals, Air Pollution, Water Pollution, and Culminating Activities. Within each phase, activities are suggested which emphasize language arts but incorporate social studies and science concepts as well. Materials needed to complete the activities are noted. Section Two offers related activities which students may choose for group work and supplement those of Section One. Six related segments--Cities, Field and Forest, Animals, Air Pollution, Still Water (pond) Pollution, and Running Water (stream) Pollution--are used to suggest a variety of concepts, multimedia materials, and learning activities. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (BL)
