Keys To The Kansas Environment. 4-H School Enrichment Program.
Kansas State Univ., Manhattan. Extension Service.
The 4-H Club packet for preschool and elementary school children contains nine "keys", or short learning exercises, designed to enrich science and environmental education both in and out of the classroom. Each "key" includes the purpose of the activity, the intended audience, the best time of the year for the activity, background information, material lists, pre- and post-activity suggestions, and directions for the activity itself, which usually centers around a field trip. Subjects include exploring the environment through touch, smell, sound, and sight; environmental observation and photography; litter; solid waste disposal; and lichens. The final "key" is a lesson for teachers on writing teaching units for outdoor education. (SB)
