Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Environmental Education: Resources and Guidelines. The Curriculum File.
Lorson, Mark V.; And Others
It has been reported that very little time is spent in the classroom on environmental education subjects unless the teacher has a special interest in the specific topic of study. This lack of time for environmental education coupled with the lack of adequate time allotted for mathematics and science instruction suggests that integrating the three--mathematics, science, and environmental education--into one learning activity can be a productive use of educational time at any grade level. This document presents a justification for integrating these subject areas. It then presents descriptions of 25 projects that are resources for integrated teaching activities for primary and secondary education, all with citations. The activities are documented in the ERIC database and most are reported with ERIC Document Reproduction Service Numbers. (Contains 12 references.) (PR)
