This unit attempts to respond to societal concerns for the rapid depletion of our world's natural resources, our increasing world population, current pollution problems and the lack of knowledge about natural interdependence. The material is intended as a source from which primary teachers can select activities from five generalized groups as follows: animals; plants; weather; miscellaneous environmental activities such as a rock study, how to use a thermometer, making microscopic slides and discovering dirt; and developing observation skills and using all five senses. Each activity is intended as a separate entity with a general format of stating the activity's objectives, listing materials needed, providing background information and describing the activity.
