A Case Study of Hogtown Creek: Justification for Field Observations.
West, Felicia E.
A case-study model of a field trip to a small creek was made to facilitate the use of field studies as a technique for involving students and teachers in studying the earth as it undergoes change. Methods and techniques of planning are presented which include familiarization with the area by the teacher, the development of goals and objectives, the administrative and logistical planning, the pre-trip classroom activities, the field trip activities, the follow-up activities, and evaluation by the students. Construction of different measurement tools is described in the activities sections, and worksheets for recording and analyzing data are presented in the appendices. (JP)
