A Multidisciplinary Process Curriculum in Environmental Education, Grade 5.
Edmonds School District 15, Lynnwood, WA.
This environmental curriculum guide is designed for teacher use in the fifth grade. A collection of multidisciplinary activities, guidelines for conducting field trips, and a resource section are included. The activities are organized within three categories--awareness, man's use, and problem solving. They are designed to provide the student with opportunities to make observations, collect and record data, interpret the data, and summarize. The use of these activities, either individually or in sequence, aims to establish a climate of pupil participation, discussion, and interaction. Each activity is classified by topic, subject, completion time, and grade level. All activities include: objectives, a materials list, teacher background information, a preactivity, the activity, a post activity, and additional activities. Guidelines for conducting a field trip are included to facilitate the teacher in teaching her students in the out-of-doors. The guidelines cover pre-field trip, field trip, and post-field trip planning. The resource section lists speakers, films, free and inexpensive materials, pamphlets, and conservation and environmental groups which may be contacted for information about environmental topics.
