Environmental Education Curriculum Guide, Grades 1-12, Experimental Draft.
Somerset Board of Education, KY.
The environmental education activities presented in this curriculum guide are experimental in nature and, therefore, it is suggested they be developed in the following sequence: exploration, discussion, and application. Also, the three types of activities should incorporate experiences which are direct, simulated, audio-visual, visual, audio, and abstract. Based on these directives, activities are written for two levels. Section One for grades 9-12 covers environmental activities in the areas of art, home economics, language arts and reading, math, science, and social studies. Each unit denotes its title, grade level, content area, concepts, performance objectives, activities, discussion topics and questions, resources (or materials needed), and evaluation procedures, followed by a list of resource or reference materials and a rating scale or checklist. Section Two for grades K-8 and Section Three for grades 5-8 utilize a similar format. In addition to the six previous subject areas, a few units also incorate activities related to music, health, and physical education. Approximately 30 units are suggested in each section. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract. (BL)
