Designed for instruction of emotionally handicapped children and youth, these seven articles present concepts and activities relative to sensory awareness and outdoor education. The first article presents definitions, concepts, detailed methodology, and over 50 activities designed to create awareness of man's five senses. Utilizing the art of photography for purposes of eliciting sensory awareness, the second article presents 10 inexpensive photography related activities. A brief article on the value of a multisensory walk emphasizes the need for specific sensory training and offers training suggestions. Utilizing Piaget's developmental protocols and experiments as a tool in education of the emotionally handicapped, the fourth article presents Piagetian oriented outdoor activities (one-to-one correspondence, quantitative similarity seriation, ordination and cardination, floating, construction of a straight line, coordination of perspectives, and movement (clouds, wind, and moon). Background for activities is also included in this article so that the teacher may better facilitate a smooth transition from the classroom to the outdoors. The fifth article deals with ant collecting and the construction of an ant farm. Similarly, the sixth article deals with terrariums, and the final article is a brief lesson on close examination of a very small plot of ground. (JC)
