Ways to Environmental Education, Volume 1.
Dawson, Joel, Ed.; And Others
This resource guide is the first of three volumes of environmental education ideas and activities compiled by participants at the Tallahassee Junior Museum for the benefit of other environmental educators. This volume contains ten booklets produced by various community groups to educate their membership or target groups about the environment. The Leon County Schools prepared a booklet of activities for environmental sensitivity that are directed toward nature but which enhance sensitivity to personal feelings, values, and needs. The Nims Middle School activities feature ten-minute mini-walks for environmental sensitivity. Girl scout activities include service projects learning about pioneer life, exploring the waterfront, and investigating land plants and small animals. Activities are designed to sharpen the ecological awareness and sense of wonder of small children. The Big Bend Sierra Club makes suggestions for environmental education, environmental community service, and public affairs. Trees are the focus of activities prepared by the Developmental Research School of Florida State University. The Leon County Humane Society's film-related activities for all ages are incorporated. Study projects with ant colonies and ecological investigations for secondary students are also included. (Author/SH)
