This environmental education curriculum guide is an interdisciplinary program for sixth-grade students. The guide includes goals, product objectives, process objectives, and appendixes. The four goals are to: (1) understand the concept of tangible and intangible environments and their interaction, (2) discover the community and one's own identity and worth within its environment, (3) develop an appreciation for the concept of preservation in dealing with environments of the past, and (4) appreciate the influence of man on the environment and the environment of man. The product objective is a statement of what the student should be able to do at the end of a given period and how this behavior change is measured or observed. The process objective is a statement of how the product can be achieved through activities such as discussion, use of audiovisual equipment, reading, collecting data, working in groups, and field trips. A pretest of community knowledge, characteristics of a neighborhood, and resources are found in the appendixes. (Author/TK)
