Description
Packed with information and easy to use, this book swiftly immerses students in environmental processes and issues, and it teaches them important scientific concepts. The hands-on activities cover a wide range of environmental topics-water, soil, wildlife, plants, ecosystems, weather, environmental problems, and oceans. Each chapter begins with a clear explanation of the topic, followed by detailed lesson plans for activities, supplementary and alternative activities, vocabulary definitions, and discussion questions that enhance student understanding of key concepts. This revised edition features new chapters on oceans, global warming, the greenhouse effect, El Nino, and recycling. Updated information on environmental problems helps build student enthusiasm by exploring issues they already recognize as timely and important. Anyone who wants to learn more about their biophysical environment-in classrooms, with youth groups, in science clubs, or at home-will find this resource helpful. D
