Classroom and Field Experiments for Florida's Environmental Resources.
This booklet is intended to help teachers in Florida manage the growing interest in environmental education. Fourteen experiments are grouped into the environmental areas of the water cycle, groundwater, water pollution, waste and water treatment, air pollution, and field experiments. Experiments include demonstrations of the water cycle, the interrelationship between ground and surface water, water pollution principles, and water treatment processes; laboratory experiments such as construction and use of air pollution detectors; and field experiments to measure the clarity of different bodies of water, study the plankton that make up the base of the food chain for marine organisms, and assess plant cover in land plots. Each experiment is organized to show educational level (junior and/or senior high) objective, tools needed, procedure, and results and discussion. One experiment for high school that assesses air pollution substitutes a section on quantitative evaluation for results. A resource list is also included. (PVD)
