Conservation for Children [Levels 1-6 and an All-Levels Supplement].
Cupertino Union School District, CA.
Developed to promote conservation awareness in elementary students, each of the six grade-level-sequenced activity guides provides: (1) a list of conservation concepts; (2) a criterion-referenced test; (3) a class record sheet; (4) a content guide; and (5) 90 student worksheets (40 for language arts, 20 for mathematics, 20 for social studies and science, and 10 for related activities). The related activities integrate conservation with arts and crafts, growing plants, or music and provide a sample of the activities found in the all-levels supplement. Test items and worksheets are correlated as are basic skill objectives and conservation topics. Each guide also provides sources of free and inexpensive materials, a list of children's books, and answers to the worksheets and the tests. The all-levels supplement contains a conservation calendar; general classroom ideas; activities for arts and crafts, music, and growing plants; a list of conservation agencies and groups; sources of free and inexpensive materials; ideas for field trips; sources of additional programs and materials; a list of films and film sources; and a bibliography of children's books.
