Since an increasing number of people today are spending leisure time in the out-of-doors, there is a need to develop society's awareness and understanding of the environment, develop outdoor skills, and stress factors in outdoor activity participation. This unit is designed to provide enough information and skill development to enable educable mentally retarded students at the intermediate and junior high level to successfully participate in some of the popular outdoor activities. Eight topics are included as follows: boating, riflery (BB guns), fire building, fishing, archery, microscope activities focusing on nature studies, tenting and outdoor lab sessions. There is a suggested unit time line for each topic with culminating work involving field experience. Specific schedules are included in each topic area and appendices provide relevant background information, diagrams and appropriate techniques. (MLB)
