Consider the Connections. Global Issues Education Packet.
Holm, Amy E.
The old ways of doing things are no longer suitable to some of the current conditions faced by the world, such as overpopulation, environmental degradation, unstable economic development, and wasteful consumption of natural resources. In order to achieve a sustainable future, nations must develop better long range planning through combining economic, environmental, and demographic priorities. This packet is designed to help improve this process by giving students information, a perspective of the global scene, and guidance to develop critical analytical skills. Four activities are included: (1) "The Big Picture"; (2) "Global Alphabet Book"; (3) "Biosphere in a Jar"; and (4) "Mind Your Manor." Each contains a brief overview, a concept statement, objectives, a list of relevant subject areas and skills, a list of materials, and procedures used to carry out the activity. Some cut-out pages are included. (CW)
