Conservation Experiences for Children. Bulletin, 1957, No. 16
Bathurst, Effie G.; Hill, Wilhelmina
Office of Education, US Department of Health, Education, and Welfare
This bulletin for teachers and supervisors tells how children of the United States are learning to conserve the Nation's reserves of soil, water, forests, fish, wildlife, minerals, and other natural resources. The purpose of this bulletin is to serve as a source of good practices to be dipped into as needed for ideas, not necessarily to be read chapter by chapter. Most of the information was collected through visits to schools in 28 States in the major conservation regions of the Nation. The information has been interpreted and supplemented by interviews with State department of education supervisors and conservation consultants. The bulletin presents realistically some of the problems related to conservation of various natural resources in such a way that, when comparable situations are found, a teacher may use the volume as a source for ideas to help her pupils understand their own conservation problems, decided what ought to be done about them, and make plans for action. Individual parts contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
