Environmental Education Curriculum Development, Grades K-1, For St. Martin Parish.
Saint Martin Parish School Board, St. Martinville, LA.
This environmental education curriculum guide is designed for teacher use in kindergarten and first grade. It contains six units, which aim to develop environmental concepts related to the bio-physical environment. Each unit, which is based on several concepts, includes behavioral objectives, activities, student worksheets, diagrams, illustrations, discussion questions, vocabulary words, resource materials, and teacher evaluation forms. The techniques of discussion, observation, classification discovery, inquiry, and field work are employed throughout. Unit 1, Ecology, deals with the interdependence between living and non-living things in the environment. The study of soil, what it is, its importance, and conservation is the focus of Unit 2. Unit 3 examines air as a substance which has weight and occupies space but has no color, odor, or shape. Unit 4 looks at water and the vital role it plays in the environment. Noise, Unit 5, is a study of sounds, how they originate, their variety, and their effects on man. Unit 6, Wildlife, looks at both plants and animals. Bird flash cards and animal flash cards, plus instructions for their use, are also included in this unit. (TK)
