Grade Four, Environmental Education Guide.
Project I-C-E, Green Bay, WI.
This fourth grade environmental education guide is one of a series of guides, K-12, which were developed by teachers to help introduce environmental education into the total curriculum. The guides are supplementary in design; it is the teacher's decision when the concepts, objectives, activities, and resources may best be integrated into the existing classroom curriculum. This guide contains a series of episodes (minilessons), each having a number of suggested in- and out-of-class learning activities. The episodes are built around 12 major environmental concepts that form a framework for each grade or subject area, as well as for the entire K-12 program. Although the same concepts are used throughout the K-12 program, emphasis is placed on different aspects of each concept at different grade levels. The fourth grade guide focuses on aspects such as soil and organisms, water purification, poetry, and design. Each of the 12 concepts is covered in one of the episodes contained in the guide. Further, each episode offers subject area integration, subject area activities, interdisciplinary activities, cognitive and affective behavioral objectives, and suggested references and resource materials useful to teachers and students. An appendix containing related games is included. (Author/TK)
