East Syracuse - Minoa Central Schools, East Syracuse, NY.
These two environmental education units were designed for use at the sixth-grade level. The first unit focuses on science and is a five-week study which emphasizes ecology along a creek. The unit is designed around the idea that a creek and its surrounding area serve as a suitable focus for environmental study because they illustrate many ecological principles. The objectives, teaching strategies, materials, and evaluation techniques reinforce the basic creek theme. A flowchart, worksheets, supplementary materials, illustrations, tables, and maps are included. The second unit, a social studies unit, illustrates the environmental concepts which are inherent in the program Man: A Course of Study (MACOS) and are designed to be used in conjunction with the MACOS program. The unit is developed around three environmental generalizations: interdependency, adaptation, and recycling. Objectives, activities and strategies, materials, and evaluation techniques are identified for each generalization. The unit also contains a flowchart to help the teacher coordinate the unit and MACOS program, quizzes, vocabulary words, and graphs. (TK)
