Avoiding Infusion Confusion 4th through 6th Grades. A Practical Handbook for Infusing Environmental Activities into Your Classroom.
Hayden, Harvey; And Others
To some educators, infusing environmental education into different subject areas at different levels may seem like an insurmountable task. This handbook was developed to take the guesswork out of this process and alleviate the fear and confusion that may result. It was designed to assist with infusing knowledge and attitude activities into the classroom, correlate widely used curriculum supplements with the objectives and principles in the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction's environmental education guide, and simplify the infusion process using proven and effective activities. Activities are categorized by subject areas, grade levels, environmental education objectives, and ecological principles. Major resources coordinated in this volume include: (1) "Project Learning Tree"; (2) "Project WILD"; (3) "Living Lightly in the City"; (4) "Nature with Children of all Ages"; and (5) "Sharing Nature with Children." The "Fundamental Environmental Principles" are enumerated. Appendices include a "Grades 4-6 Appendix" and environmental education resources. (CW)
