Nature's Alphabet.
Hyland, Barb
The purpose of this collection of environmental education units, written by teachers and environmental educators, is to develop in students a sense of wonder, curiosity, and interest about the environment. The 26 interdisciplinary activity units are designed to be used as pre-activities or follow-up activities to other outdoor studies in the elementary grades. The booklet contains a unit for each letter of the alphabet, such as, A-Ants, B-Buds, C-Compost, D-Dirt. Each activity unit identifies the appropriate grade level, optimal time of year for teaching the unit, the objectives, needed materials, background information, pre-activity questions, the activity, and post activities. The units are for kindergarten through fourth grade, and are designed to utilize the out-of-doors. The activities in the unit include math activities, art activities, sensory awareness skill development, and language art activities. Predominant throughout the units is the emphasis on inquiry and discovery. (TK)
