Humboldt County Schools, Eureka, CA.
This elementary school science unit approaches environmental education from a humanistic point of view. The stated goals of the program are to establish: "(1) a sanitive use of the environment, (2) a sense of environmental responsibility, and (3) a respect for life." The program format is a series of cards and booklets for student and teacher use. Classroom activities appear on cards: 96 DO cards list information concerning student directed investigations; 25 THINK cards provide topics intended to foster students' knowledge into an awareness of the interdependence, the use, the change, and the adaptation of the environment; and 250 SHOW cards suggest methods by which students communicate what they have learned. Also included in the unit are booklets on geographic areas in which environmental activities can be observed. A total of 15 outdoor problem solving activities and 15 lengthy outdoor investigations, along with a bibliography of additional sources of environmental education activities, complete this "curriculum in a box."
