The workbook of field ecology is for use by high school science students participating in two and one-half day weekend trips to Acadia National Park, Maine, as part of Project Adventure, an interdisciplinary program aimed at educating the whole student through experienced-based learning in academics and a physical education program in the outdoors. Physical education activities during the weekend include hiking, rappeling, and cliff climbing. Academic activities rely heavily on observation and include the study of water, dams, fallen trees, beaver huts, rock slides, vegetation, ecological relationships, local history, seaweed, sand, animal life, ponds, and shoreline. A scavenger hunt is included which encompasses all aspects of the Park. Introductory material includes charts, maps, history of the area, and vocabulary. There is a follow-up exercise concerning student reaction to the weekend. The availability of additional information on Project Adventure is noted on the cover sheet. (SB)
