This guide is devoted to the presentation and development of concepts dealing with conservation education in the public schools. The guide develops four overriding concepts: (1) The Wholeness of Earth's Systems; (2) The Effects of Ecosystems on Human Beings; (3) Human Beings Are Now the Most Influential of Earth's Organisms; and (4) Our Ability to Comprehend Must be Coupled With the Obligation of Self-Control. There are four segments, each of which covers a three-grade portion of the K-12 span. Each segment deals with the four concepts in the context of the specific grade span. Resource materials supporting concept development are cited. (RE)
