Natural Resources Activity Guide. Bulletin No. 1232.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge.
Over the past 50 years the U.S. population has shifted from rural to urban areas. Most of the students in U.S. schools today live in urban environments. As a result of this, most students have little knowledge of natural resources and their management. Since these students are the future decision-makers of the country, it is important that they have an understanding of the environment and its interaction with all factors, natural or man-made. It is because of this concern for the future that this activity guide was developed. The activities in the guide include a variety of disciplines including science, math, art, communications, and social studies. Designed for teachers, the guide includes a rationale for the process and problem-solving approach to learning that is used in these activities, and gives a detailed explanation as to its most effective usage in the development of lesson plans. Most of the activities, with some modification, can be adapted for most grade levels, though they are appropriate for older students in original form. Role-playing activities and a simulation game are included. A bibliography and materials list are given in the back of the guide. (MA)
