Green Schools Activity Booklet.
Sacramento Tree Foundation, CA.
This collection of interdisciplinary hands-on activities covers a variety of topics related to trees and conservation. Twenty-four activities integrate the subjects of social studies, fine arts, science, language arts, math, geography, and music. Although activity instructions are not consistent they usually contain details on objectives and procedure. Some activities are accompanied by student worksheets. Three lesson plans focus on the biology of trees and contain sections on objectives, materials, activities and alternate activities, and discussion questions. Other activities involve students in examining environmental issues, and experimenting with seeds and plant growth. The collection contains nine poems and a song. A bibliography with 11 entries provides sources from which activities were compiled. (LZ)
