This book is a useful addition to the literature of environmental education. This book is a teacher's handbook; it is not a text for the pupil, not a curriculum course of study, not an exhortation to teachers and pupils, but a curriculum supplement. It should prove helpful to teachers at any grade level.

As one might expect, such a text, prepared and written by three authors, each of whom is recognized as a master teacher, has a wealth of practical suggestions for vitalizing classroom teaching. These suggested activities are built around a listing of concepts which were derived from research undertaken at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and validated from the point of view of the educator for relevance to the problems of environmental education. Supporting the concepts and activities are listings of books, film, and suppliers of free and inexpensive instructional materials.

As noted in the pages dealing with the theoretical foundation of environmental education, the subject is interdisciplinary in nature relating to all grade levels and subject areas, a characteristic which every teacher should exploit. In the many aspects of the subjects presented in the volume, teachers will find numerous centers of interest to challenge their classes.
