Instructional Guide for Outdoor Education, K-3. Wausau District Public Schools, Wausau, Wisconsin.
Curtis, Hugh; And Others
This guidebook is designed to assist elementary grade teachers in following an outdoor education curriculum developed in Wausau, Wisconsin, though the activities are applicable to most areas. The book contains outlines of materials and lessons to use and evaluate so that a final guidebook can be produced that will be of the most use for teachers. This outdoor education approach encourages observation and interdisciplinary study. The curriculum stresses observation skills, social behavior, the environment, and the conservation of natural resources. Field trips are encouraged and a schedule of locations and their descriptions is included. Each lesson is divided into a number of components. The grade level, K-3, is given along with the objective, concept, and purpose of the lesson. The teacher is then given guidelines for introducing, developing, extending, and fixing the concept. Where materials are required, they are listed, along with audio-visual materials that supplement the lesson. (MA)
