Learning Outdoors: Leader Guide, Grade 3. 4-H Discovery.
Abell, John R.; Newman, Jerry A.
The United States has a rich natural resource heritage. It is important to educate students in the principles of conservation so that these natural resources may endure for generations. This guide is designed to help leaders to learn to organize groups of children and conduct successful meetings; provide fun, safe, outdoor learning experiences for children; use basic outdoor leadership skills; and get ideas for meetings, field trips, day and overnight hikes, tours, and additional resources. The 24 activities in this guide are grouped into eight groups: (1) "Air"; (2) "Marine"; (3) "Energy"; (4) "Forestry"; (5) "Range"; (6) "Soil"; (7) "Water"; and (8) "Wildlife". Each activity lists sites, objectives, materials, background, and procedures. A brief discussion of safety is included. Twenty-one references are listed. (CW)
