This guide is designed to assist curriculum developers, subject area specialists, and teachers in identifying environmental activities and learning aids appropriate for various grade levels. The guide attempts to integrate all grade levels by using the same conceptual scheme throughout the primary, intermediate, middle, and secondary levels. This conceptual scheme includes six major statements: (1) living things are interdependent with one another and their environment; (2) all organisms are interrelated through matter and energy; (3) the environment must be protected; (4) population size is regulated in nature; (5) the world is a finite system with limited resources; and (6) the available technical solutions to environmental problems must be implemented. Topics are listed under each environmental statement for each grade level thus obtaining continuity in the total program. (MR)
