A Curriculum Activities Guide to Water Pollution and Environmental Studies, Volume I - Activities.
Hershey, John T., Ed.; And Others
This publication, Volume I of a two volume set, consists of many tested water pollution study activities. The activities are grouped into four headings: (1) Hydrologic Cycle, (2) Human Activities, (3) Ecological Perspectives, and (4) Social and Political Factors. Three levels of activities are provided: (1) those which increase awareness, (2) those which allow students and teachers to take actions related to particular concerns, and (3) those which are ongoing problem investigations. The activities are written with the same format of seven sections: (1) Introduction, (2) Questions, (3) Equipment, (4) Procedure, (5) Past Studies, (6) Limitations, and (7) Bibliography and Resources. The introduction gives grade range, time required, setting, and some objectives for the activity. Questions include those to lead into, initiate, and continue the activity and evaluate student's performance. The bibliography and resources section includes books, films, and other teaching materials. These activities could be very useful in planning and teaching water resource management and water pollution considerations to students from elementary through high school levels in the classroom and outdoors, and urban and rural settings.
