Hershey, John T.; And Others
This material is one publication of a series of documents available from the Institute for Environmental Education (Cleveland) and consists of a curriculum activities guide to birds, bugs, dogs, and weather and environmental studies. The first edition of this material was prepared by the Documentation Task Force of Project KARE, Philadelphia, and was revised by personnel at the institute. The guide is intended for use by teachers and students until they feel sufficiently confident to prepare their own materials and is organized into three sections: Chapter 1 is on awareness activities, 2 on transitional activities, and 3 on operational activities. Awareness activities, developed with process skills in mind, are designed to orient students toward a concern for environmental problems and a realization that the problems are appropriate subjects for study. Transitional activities are directed toward real community concerns. Operational activities are integrated with community efforts to solve environmental problems. The guide's format is that of a questioning sequence, using questions to (1) lead to the activity, (2) initiate the activity, (3) continue the activity, (4) expand the activity, and (5) evaluate the activity. Teachers using the guide are invited to use only those activities that are most appropriate to their situation. (PEB)
