This environmental unit is one of a series designed for integration within an existing curriculum. The unit is self-contained and requires very little teacher preparation. The philosophy of the series is based on an experience-oriented process that encourages students to work independently and at their own speeds. This particular unit is designed to develop the skill of observation in young children. The activities have been drawn from Science - A Process Approach and the MINNEMAST Elementary Science and Mathematics project. Students are asked to make observations of color and color changes in natural objects, particularly plants. Some works is done with extracted plant pigments. Teacher information concerning materials, background information, and additional topics is given. A short bibliography is included. (MA)
