Outdoor and Environmental Education Manual, Grades K-6.
In an effort to help elementary teachers see how the out-of-doors can be utilized in everyday teaching, this manual lists possible outdoor activities that can be included in the school curriculum. Introductory information defines objectives of outdoor education, suggestions for evaluation of outdoor education experiences, and techniques for teaching in the out-of-doors. The activities section, divided by grade level (1-2, 3, 4, and 5-6), utilizes a conceptual approach within specific subject areas. General objectives are noted for each subject, succeeded by individual concepts and their supporting activities and follow-up. Subjects include science, language arts, mathematics, social studies, and arts/crafts/music at each level. The final segment suggests health, physical education, and recreation activities appropriate for all grade levels. References are listed by section. (BL)
