Horse Manure and Other Fun Projects. Field Studies and Laboratory Experiences in Environmental Biology - A Book of Experimental Ideas for Secondary School Biology Teachers.
Brown, Robert T., Ed.; Clark, Barbara G., Ed.
This guide contains a collection of laboratory and field inquiries designed to promote ecological awareness, sensitivity, and understanding. The activities compiled by 28 teachers are for use in teaching biology at the secondary level. They are presented in a "recipe" form to make it possible for teachers without prior experience or training to use the activities with ease and confidence. The experiments are generally open-ended, leaving the teacher and students with extensions for further activities. Nine chapters are included in the guide: Planning Outdoor Field Experiences; Field Studies, Physical Factors; Field Studies, Plants; Field Studies, Animals; Field Studies; Succession; Field Studies, Water Organisms; Laboratory Studies; Human Ecology, Pollution, and Population; and Permanent Outdoor Facilities Development and Use. Each chapter contains a number of activities. The activities contain, when appropriate: the purpose, procedures, materials, observations, suggestions and discussion topics, and conclusions. A reference section including books, programs, and resource people completes the guide. (TK)
