Strategies to Affect Student Sensory Awareness of the Environment in a Rural Schools Setting: Kindergarten Through Grade Three.
Peters, Richard O.
Presenting eight sample environmental education sensory lessons designed for K-3 students in rural areas, this guide briefly details the rationale and means for developing proximity congruence between students and life space phenomena. Field trips, nature walks, site studies, and other outdoor activities are briefly discussed. The format of each sample sensory lesson includes: an activity focus; grade range; concept; purpose; and numerous suggested activities. The areas of focus include: senses; shape and form; trees; living things; local birds; plants and animals; early spring flowers; and pond life. Exemplary activities include: finding man-made geometric forms such as buildings, signs, fences, etc. and identifying their shapes; adopting a tree and studying it throughout the year; going on a treasure hunt to look for natural treasures; making a nest, feather, and bird print collection; making an ant farm and carrying out research oriented activities; collecting snails and comparing the behavior of the captive snail with that of the wild snail; etc. (JC)
