The Winter Environment. Environmental Education Curriculum.
Topeka Public Schools, KS.
Winter seems to hold more mysteries than any other season. It changes the behavior of wildlife and also brings about drastic changes in plant life. This unit, designed around the following two ideas: (1) to develop an appreciation and understanding of the winter season and (2) to understand how plants and wildlife are affected by the winter season, attempts to provide a study of the winter season on a level that special education students can understand. The activities are aimed at level II and III educable mentally retarded special education classes. There are four topics: (1) The Season of Winter, (2) Wildlife in Winter, (3) Field Trip--Plants in the Winter, and (4) Wildlife in Winter--A Continuation of Topic 2. For each topic there are behavioral objectives, student activities, and teacher suggestions. The number in parentheses by the activity number indicates the objectives the activity helps develop. The unit also includes goals and objectives, an objective summary sheet, a unit time line, a materials sheet, and 18 appendixes which contain various teaching aids related to the activities. (TK)
