Washington Environmental Yard: An Environmental Education Tool Description and Assessment. Final Report.
Young, Donald G., Comp.; And Others
The project described in this publication took place during the 1974-75 school year in an elementary school (K-4) in Berkeley, California. The purpose of the project was to integrate the school yard into the daily classroom activities of the children and the staff. Included in the publication are: (1) a description of the environmental yard, (2) the teaching and learning activities used, (3) the research component of the project, (4) methods used to develop the project, and (5) appendices of a number of items including questionnaires, activity cards, maps, and brainstorming sessions. The project staff felt the real success of the project was in clarifying how to do what they were trying to do, methods that need to be employed, and how to plan to orchestrate the program. Recommendations for future program development are presented. (RH)
