Land Use Management Activities for the Classroom.
Bowman, Mary Lynne; Disinger, John F.
The activities included in this publication were selected and developed to give teachers ideas and examples of ways to implement land use management instruction in the classroom. One of the primary objectives of this compilation is to demonstrate that there is now in existence a variety of materials that focus on land use concerns. The activities, designed for student use in grades K through 12, are "action-oriented" and involve student participation throughout the school community. Each activity has been classified by the authors according to the most appropriate grade level, subject matter and land use concept involved. In addition to being classified in these categories, each activity contains: (1) a statement of purpose on how the activity may be used; and (2) a reference to a source where the activity may be found in more detail or with variations. The subject areas encompassed by these activities include science, mathematics, social studies, language arts, and fine arts. Some typical activities are planting trees, examining soil, and discussing newspaper articles. (Author/BB)
