A Beginning. Revised 3rd Edition.
Healy, Mary K.; Root, Phyllis
This document contains a selection of materials focusing on man acting to know, preserve, and improve his environment. The booklet is divided into three parts. Part one presents a listing of objectives. They reflect a need for all to become aware of the problems that plague our environment. Furthermore, they indicate that the ecological improvement of the earth is the responsibility of each and every member of society. The second section is a description of eleven class projects which are to be adapted and used in the appropriate grade level, kindergarten through twelve. Relevant topics include environmental laws that could be submitted to the state legislature, a conservation fair, an advertising campaign for endangered species, a map of your locality with its environmental problems and proposed solutions, and "ecopornography." Part three, the most extensive, is a directory of resources. Provided are a brief description, cost information, and grade level for films, filmstrips, printed materials, literature, units, texts, periodicals, songs, and games. (BP)
