Summary

Presented is the experimental edition of Unit I: Exploring My Environment, which consists of 29 life science curriculum activities intended for the 13-to-15-year-old educable mentally retarded child. The curriculum guide is being used in the final field test prior to revision. Stressed throughout the program are ecological themes, inquiry skills, problem solving skills, environmental elements, and applicational behaviors and attitudes. Seven to 12 activities for each of the three core study areas within Unit I are given of which the following are examples: making a pond, sniffing around, forming categories, and reading a thermometer. Activities are organized into materials, teaching strategies, and anticipated student behaviors. The three cores are sensing the environment, investigating the environment, and landmarks in the environment. The ecological theme stressed is the interrelationships of environmental components. Inquiry skills seen to be developed are observing and identifying. Problem solving skills emphasized are experimenting and knowing what the problem is and what to do about it. Environmental elements considered are space and shelter. Behavioral objectives include the development in the student of a sense of self-identity and an attitude of inquiry. (See EC 050 871, and EC 050 873 through EC 050 875 for related curriculum guides.) (DB)
