Teaching Materials for Environmental Education. Investigating Your Environment.
Forest Service (USDA), Washington, DC.
The environment lesson plans in this packet are designed to take an in-depth look at different components of the environment. The plans were developed with the assistance of specialists in educational processes and educators, students, and resource-agency people for whom they are designed. They have been field-tested in environmental education workshops throughout the country. The lessons provide a structure for learning in which an activity builds on others and leads to generalizations about the environment. They also are designed to elicit a maximum of student response and involvement through the use of discussions and question techniques. In many instances charts, tables, and other aids are included to help the student interpret the data he has collected. The titles of the lessons are: Investigations of Land Use Planning; Measuring Some Water Quality Criteria; Investigating Envrionmental Habitats; Interpreting the Landscape in a Forest Environment; Land Use Simulation Game; Comparing Two Environments; and Investigating an Urban Environment.
