Environmental Learning Center, Isabella, Minn.
A collection of activities used successfully at the Environmental Learning Center in Isabella, Minnesota, are contained in this guide. Areas of study are perception and communication, mapping, weather, snow, soil, aquatics, trees, and animals. Within these areas is a number of related activities, each to be adapted to the appropriate grade level. The exercises contain a brief description with a statement of purpose. Equipment checklists indicate what the center furnishes, and what you are expected to provide. Procedures explain specifically how to go about each activity. A series of discussion questions serve as a follow up to the exercises. The lessons provide a degree of flexibility, so that they can be used when designing a resident program, or modified to accommodate individual or group needs. A number of the activities suggest the use of activity cards which can be reproduced from the lesson sample. Notebooks are also indicated as being important in most areas. Included in the appendix is a detailed account of available equipment at the center, including those items for camping, recreation, measuring, optics, astronomy, terrestrial needs, aquatic needs, test kits, and audiovisual aids. The bibliography contains a collection of materials used to develop environmentally oriented lessons. (BP)
