Lindbergh School District Outdoor Education '73/'74.
Schott, Willis R. M., Ed.
Since 1968, Lindbergh School District fifth graders have participated in a five day resident camp program designed to foster an appreciation for nature, to promote self-reliance while developing emotional maturity, and to provide a communal living experience with peers and teachers. The handbook is a composite of teachers', administrators', and students' efforts toward developing this Outdoor Education Program. Every phase of the camp program and its organization is detailed, including a description of the school district, a history of the Outdoor Education Program, camp rules, counselor application procedures and responsibilities, health services, camp library resources, camp schedules, camper responsibilities, flag ceremonies, weather observation procedures, get acquainted activities, songs, and pre-trip orientation plans. Curriculum materials focus on tree identification, soils and geology, pond life, insect study, animal study, fishing, archery, and art, and include lesson plans, activities, work sheets, and appropriate student hand outs. Student and teacher evaluation forms are presented along with samples of certificates, checklists, and charts. (NEC)
