Environmental Education: Problems, Projects and Exercises [Grades 4-10].
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Science Education.
This sourcebook is an example of how environmental concepts can be introduced into various areas of the school curriculum. Included are a series of problems, projects, and exercises for students in grades four through ten. They are concerned primarily with pollution, population, individual needs, industrial needs, and consumption, on both a community and national scale. Each of the activities presents a particular problem, and students are asked to utilize their computational skills and/or suggest alternatives. The various problems and exercises aim to challenge students' problem-solving abilities in dealing with whole numbers, rational numbers, real numbers, percent and proportion, measurement, statistical measures, and graphs. Through generation of projects, students examine problems and suggest ways to improve environmental conditions. (BP)
