S.E.E.D. Schoolroom Environmental Experiences for Dayton.
Zeph, Paul T.
This booklet contains descriptions of four programs that were developed by the Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm (Dayton, Ohio) for educators to present to school classrooms. They focus on environmental issues, involve creative dramatics, and promote student participation in protecting and caring for their environment. "Endangered Animals" (for grades 1-3) uses the bald eagle as an example to help students learn the needs of animals for survival and contains tips for presenting a class play about deciding the fate of one eagle. "Magic Soil" (for grades 1-3) looks at the food we eat and where it comes from. This program emphasizes the need to care for our soil. "Something's in the Water" (for grades 4-6) uses a fairy tale theme in which students help solve the mystery of a poisoned water supply, and then role play in a town meeting to work out a solution to the problem. The last program described, "One Rainy Day" (for grades 6-9), involves the students in an exploration of the complex problem of acid rain. (TW)
