Outdoor Areas as Learning Laboratories, CESI Sourcebook. An Occasional Sourcebook of The Council for Elementary Science, International.
McCormack, Alan J., Comp.
This guide is intended to be a source of ideas for outdoor learning activities appropriate for youngsters in elementary, middle, and junior high schools. It may also be useful for those who work with children primarily in outdoor settings. Decisions as to which activities are appropriate for particular age levels are left to the teacher. Each activity includes title, focus, challenges, materials and equipment, instructions, further challenges, and references appropriate to the activity. Activities are designed to assist the teacher in using outdoor areas surrounding the school as a laboratory for effective instruction. (Author/RE)
