This environmental education teaching guide was designed for primary teachers who may want to develop their own environmental education units or who may wish to integrate the units contained in the guide into their own curriculum. The units in the guide were developed by primary teachers and reflect the experiences of the Fairmont Avenue School students and teachers at a nearby park. The guide is divided into five small interest units which provide primary children an opportunity to choose an area of learning and study this area in a group situation. The interest groups within the guide include the aquarium interest group, insect interest group, dried flowers interest group, leaves and trees interest group and the terrarium interest group. Each interest unit contains objectives, procedures, field trip, follow up, evaluation, and reference materials. Further information including wildflower illustrations; insect facts; instructions for making an insect cage; illustration of insects, animals, and plants; safety rules; and a sample permission letter are included.
