East Syracuse - Minoa Central Schools, East Syracuse, NY.
This series of five environmental education units is designed for use in grades 1-5. The units are designed around the concepts of survival, interdependence, scarcity, recyclement, rights vs. responsibility, planning, valuing, social forces, and optimism. Each unit is further developed around environmental generalizations (subconcepts), objectives, activities and strategies, materials, and expected outcomes. The grade 1 unit is designed to give the child a variety of sensory and intellectual experiences. The purpose of the grade 2 unit is to expand the student's idea of his environment. The grade 3 unit focuses on air and the use of the senses to explore air. The grade 4 unit utilizes an interdisciplinary approach to explore water and the water environments. The grade 5 unit is concerned with the wisest multiple use of renewable resources and encourages the child into a commitment and involvement. Appendixes are included for each unit. (TK)
