This booklet explores various ways that environmental learning opportunities can be created at elementary schools by utilizing school facilities and surrounding school grounds. The booklet's first two chapters present tips that can help educators determine a school grounds' environmental condition. There is advice that educators can use to develop proposals for improving the school grounds' environmental condition, as well. Also included are some basic principles to consider when using school grounds for environmental teaching. Subsequent chapters explain how to create environmental learning opportunities using not only the school building, but hard-surfaced areas, ponds, grasslands, wildflowers, insect gardens, and woodlands. Five case studies are included. These case studies discuss school grounds designs that support environmental education. The booklet concludes with a list of additional resources for further information. (GR)
