Environmental Terms--The Basics.
Lee County School District, Ft. Myers, FL. Dept. of Environmental Education and Instructional Development Services.
One of the problems of the English language is that individual words can often convey such a breadth of meaning that people often find themselves speaking past each other. The jargon of the environment is not immune. The words included in this publication are some of those more basic to the understanding of the environment. Definitions offered here are intended to help understanding of the words themselves, understanding of other people, and the understanding of the environment as a whole. Illustrations are included in such a manner that the pages could be used as mini-posters, story starters, and motivators of student interest. Included in this guide are the definitions of 24 environmental terms on separate pages. (CW)
