Completing the Cycle: It's Up to You. Phase 2, An Integrated Unit in Environmental Education, Grades 4-8.
Indiana State Dept. of Education, Indianapolis. Center for School Improvement and Performance.
This curriculum module is designed to provide teachers with classroom activities that promote an understanding of environmental issues such as conservation, preservation, ecology, resource management, solid waste management, and recycling. The activities enable teachers, students in grades 4 through 8, and families to begin thinking about these issues in relationship to their own lives. The activities are designed to give children a sense of their own power, to bring about change, and to give teachers flexibility to modify, adjust, and fit the activities into existing social studies, mathematics, science, fine arts, health, and language arts curricula. The unit has been correlated to the Indiana Curriculum Proficiency Guide and each level in the unit is a foundation for the next with responsibility, citizenship, stewardship, and environmental issues addressed at each level. Names and addresses of several organizations related to litter, recycling, and waste management are included. Contains 16 references. (DDR)
