Teacher's Guide, Ecology, Grade 7.
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 7. 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 making a tin can barometer, conducting a plot study, and collecting insects and flowers from grassy fields to the study of food chains, natural areas, and golden rod galls; from tree measurement, soil study, and ecology and natural resources projects to an examination of eutrophication, community relationships, and pollution. 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 seventh grade level. Related documents are SE 016 626 and SE 016 628. (BL)
