Morillo, Alfredo; Del Valle, Ramona
This guide contains six elementary grade units which focus on environmental concepts considered of major importance by the agricultural personnel of the Dominican Republic. Each of the units shows a cumulative and sequential building of these concepts. Unit 1 (grade 1) focuses on the basics of plant and animal differentiation and on the properties of soil. Unit 2 (grade 2) centers around man's use and care of plants, animals, and soil, and on their interrelationships. Unit 3 (grade 3) considers the natural resources of the country and the community, examining wildlife, forests, and watersheds. Unit 4 (grade 4) covers deterioration and exhaustion of natural resources. Unit 5 (grade 5) and unit 6 (grade 6) deal with conservation and conservation practices, emphasizing the development or understanding of ways to help solve the problems which are presented. Each unit includes: a list of behavioral objectives; background information, indicating the more important aspects on which the teacher should concentrate; suggested activities (including field-oriented activities) to help students clarify the concept(s) under consideration; suggested complementary activities, which involve reinforcement of concepts through hands-on projects at the school site; and suggested exercises suitable for testing purposes.
