New Activity and Idea Book

Ten-Minute Field Trips: A Teacher's Guide to Using the Schoolgrounds for Environmental Studies - Helen Ross Russell
For teachers in all school environments--urban, suburban, or rural, this book includes more than 200 short, close-to-home field trips that explore new dimensions of familiar spaces and objects. Brick walls, rock outcrops, lawns, broken pavement, weeds, and trees are all targets for exploration. Each topic section (plants, animals, interdependence of living things, physical science, Earth science, and ecology) includes pre-trip classroom activities, teacher preparation, and a list of trip possibilities. For urban areas, a special cross-referenced list of field trips for hard-topped school grounds is included.
