Secrets of the Marsh. An Activity Resource Book For and By Children. Second Edition.
Euler, Aline, Ed.
This publication contains a collection of student-produced activities about wildlife. Children's views of the varying life forms that they encountered in field walks to a marsh are expressed through the games, puzzles, stories, and pictures that they created. Samples of the students' work are organized into separate topic areas. These include: (1) insects; (2) trees and plants; (3) reptiles; (4) birds; and (5) mammals. Specific aspects of these major topic areas are developed as facts on rabbits, diagrams of tree parts, and stories about turtles. The activities are geared primarily to middle school age students but some could be easily adapted to the primary age children. (ML)
