Resource Guide for Field Study: St. Augustine to Flagler Beach. Resource Monograph No. 4.
West, Felicia E.
This resource monograph is one of a series designed as a teaching guide for field studies. Each guide centers around the exploration, observation, and interpretation of a field site in one of the four geological areas of Florida. Incorporated into the guides are many of the subject-matter schemes of the Earth Science Curriculum Program (ESCP) and three major process schemes: science as inquiry, comprehension of scale, and prediction. Each guide gives the teacher information on the planning and execution of the field trip, as well as educational objectives, learning activities, and teaching materials available. This particular resource guide is concerned with a field trip along the east coast of Florida. It provides the teacher and secondary students with the opportunity to observe the topography of Florida, evidences of former stands of sea level, mineral resources of the area, and shoreline features of the east coast. Areas included in the trip are Fowler's Prairie, Devil's Sink, Lady Slipper Lake, and Florahome Valley. Photographs and maps of the area covered are an integral part of the guide. A road log and bibliography conclude this teacher resource. (MA)
