Action for a Cleaner Tomorrow: A South Carolina Environmental Curriculum Grades 6-12, 2nd Edition.
South Carolina State Dept. of Health and Environmental Control, Columbia.
The goal of this curriculum is to teach students to think about their daily habits and to make environmentally responsible choices. The lessons and activities are divided by grade levels: 6-8 and 9-12. Lessons in each grade level are designed to cover a range of student skills, subject areas, and environmental issues. An extensive resource section includes background information on specific issues at the state and global level as well as a glossary. Each lesson has a teacher's section which includes grade level, lesson focus, materials, teaching time, and vocabulary. Most lessons are interdisciplinary and include extension activities and ideas for individual and group action for environmental causes. Topics covered in the lessons include litter control, waste disposal, recycling, water pollution, and conservation of energy. (DDR)
