Primary and Initial Experiences in Outdoor Environments. It's Close and Single.
Brooks, B. Wayne
One major intent of learning in the outdoors is to integrate intellectual and emotional understanding. In this light, the outdoor education activities suggested in this document may be artificial unless they are incorporated within the child's discovery of his role in the total, natural scheme of things. The introductory section of the document explains the importance of developing an adequate school site which uses natural resources. Section A lists 6 simple activities, covering such areas as sound, touch, and temperature. Section B explains scavenger hunts; Section C, trail-type activities. Nearby outdoor activities are given in Section D, with concepts, problems, and long range studies for each. Section E lists 36 additional outdoor activities. Reference and library books comprise Section F. (KM)
