Bohm, Rudy; Cole, Wally
Designed for sixth grade students to help them prepare for the Multnomah County (Oregon) Outdoor School experience, the workbook provides fundamental information about soil, water, plant, and animal resources. The workbook begins with an introduction to environmental manners (rules for working in the woods). A section devoted to each resource area provides general information on the specific resource; a glossary of terms and words which students will be expected to know; and learning activities which include charts, matching activities, drawing sheets, labeling and completing study sheets, bingo games, crossword puzzles, word searches, and word scrambles. The activities address the following topics: the water cycle, dissolved oxygen, pH (a measurement scale indicating the acidity or alkalinity of a plant or animal environment), the crayfish, water-loving plants and animals, the soil profile, trees, leaves, vertebrates, insects, reptiles and amphibians, birds, mammals, and the ecosystem.
