Our World and Welcome to It: A Handbook for Environmental Education.
Seilheimer, Jack A.; Lane, Ed
Prepared for use in outdoor and environmental studies, this manual provides a collection of activities which focus on awareness, represented as a process involving observation, interpretation, and application. Traditional subjects and processes are suggested for each component of the awareness continuum. However, because the activities are non-graded, teachers are encouraged to synthesize the ideas with the awareness continuum in a manner best suited to individual needs and interests. The activities, ranging from environmental collages, language arts in a sandbox, and weather forecasting to community structure analysis, forest management, and blind nature walks, can be used with pre-schoolers through adults. Materials needed, objectives, and procedures are outlined for each activity. In addition, the handbook discusses planning an outdoor education area, pre- and posttest ideas, guidelines for environmental action, community resources, and compiles data charts, diagrams, and bibliographic references.
