The following components are included in the unit: an overview, major concepts, behavioral objectives, daily schedule, lesson plans for classroom activities and field trips, career opportunities in environmental education, pretest and posttest, and student and teacher evaluation forms. The unit requires three weeks of class time, is multidisciplinary in nature, and is structured around student-centered activities in which emphasis is placed upon the study of the local environment.
