Environmental Education Teacher's Guide: Composite K-6.
Bennett, Dean B.; Willink, Wesley H.
This Environmental Education Teacher's Guide, developed for use at the K-6 level, is designed to familiarize teachers with how an environmental education program can help in their teaching and in achieving the goals of the school. This program focuses on developing attitudes towards study environments and associated environmental problems. The study environments have been selected to provide a means of expanding the scope and complexity of understandings. At the kindergarten/grade one level, the school environment is emphasized; grades two and three, the neighborhood; grades four and five, the community; and grade six, the region. The guide is divided into three sections. Section I, The Big Ideas, contains major concepts and attitudes, teaching roles and student skills, process teaching examples, and general concept emphasis. Section II, Examples of Activities and Pre-Post Tests, contains core experiences, concepts, and pre- and post-tests for kindergarten through grade six. Section III, Other Useful Information, includes information on planning and conducting field trips, environmental evaluation and identification of improvement opportunities, evaluation of the Man-Made Environment and environmental problem-solving and improvement activities.
