Jelly Jam, the People Preserver. An Environmental Self-Teaching Activity Book.
Designed for students in grades 2 through 4, this self-teaching, interdisciplinary reading and activity program comprises a complete supplemental reading, science, and social studies approach to the problems of environmental pollution. Jelly Jam, a caring little animal, helps children understand how air, water, and land pollution affects their own lives and what they can do to help clean up the environment. Children read about ecological problems and, through experiments, field trips, plays, songs, coloring activities, crossword puzzles, mazes, and a host of school and family anti-pollution activities, learn real solutions that they themselves implement. The guide also presents self-corrective activities, a word list for vocabulary improvement, and answer pages for student self-teaching. (LH)
