Exploring Environmental Change: An Environmental Education Kit.
Funk, Jean; And Others
This educational resource kit consists of five illustrated panels and the Teacher/Leader Guide. The five illustrations show a camp setting over a time sequence from the 1940s or 1950s through 1986. Each panel illustrates the speed and the causes of change, showing the addition of factories across the camp lake; alteration, razing, and building of camp facilities; addition of camp activity sites; alteration of the natural landscape; and other environmental changes. The Teacher/Leader Guide accompanying the panels identifies major themes and items to look for in each illustration under these headings: activities, ecology, economics, environment, facilities, human intervention, people, and technology. For each heading, the guide identifies major concepts and makes suggestions for learning activities. Learning activities relate the panel illustrations to changing concerns such as sex roles, handicapped campers, land use, community, appropriate clothing, recycling, erosion, safety, and ecological diversity. Activities suggested include making lists; writing essays, poems, letters, and stories; playing games; drawing pictures and postcards; singing songs; and inventing animal stories and conversations. The guide emphasizes the interrelation of all things, humans and the natural environment, culture and physical change. The guide also suggests additional themes for which learning activities could be developed using these panels. (DHP)
