Teacher's Guide, Ecology, Grade 4.
Yadkin Valley Economic Development District, Inc., Walnut Cove, NC.
This teacher's guide has been constructed to assist in developing and implementing a life science course with an environment/ecological unit for Grade 4. Designed primarily for use with other science units, it offers numerous multidisciplinary activities which emphasize involvement in problem-solving through open-ended investigation rather than problem-doing only. Activity ideas range from a nature creep, plaster casting animal tracks, and making an ecological diorama to the study of community/government/industry relations, natural selection, and awareness; from language arts, activities, ecology and natural resources projects, and pollution control to consideration of wildlife, population growth, and conservation. Resource material compiled in the final section gives an annotated film list, a bibliography of books, and sources for free and inexpensive materials oriented to the fourth grade level. Related documents are SE 016 627 and SE 016 628. (BL)
