A Multidisciplinary Process Curriculum in Environmental Education, Grade 2.
Edmonds School District 15, Lynnwood, WA.
This second grade curriculum guide is based on a multidisciplinary approach to environmental education. The guide includes activities, guidelines for field trip planning, and a resource section. The guide deals with the subjects of plants, soil, and litter. Each subject section includes activities based on the physical characteristics, man's use, and man's misuse of the subject. Activities may be used individually or in sequence, and aim to promote the development of positive attitudes toward the environment. Each activity provides the teacher with objectives, teacher background information, a materials list, a preactivity, the activity, a postactivity, supplemental activities, and illustrations intended for copying. Guidelines for conducting a field trip are included to facilitate the teacher in teaching in the out-of-doors. The guidelines cover pre-field trip, field trip, and post-field trip planning. A resource section includes speakers, films, free and inexpensive materials, pamphlets, and conservation and environmental groups which may be contacted for information on environmental topics. (TK)
