This teachers manual describes the role of teacher as coach and provides valuable tips for outdoor teaching. Each unit of the investigation integrates the other content areas of mathematics, language arts, and social studies in a manner consistent with the suggestions in the National Science Education Standards. This book will alleviate any fears about taking classroom instruction outdoors. There are 10 areas of investigation, each designed to take 10 days to complete at one hour per day; however, the lessons are flexible. These investigations include the senses, trees, birds, insects, ants, biodiversity, habitats, engangered species, and the food chain. A focus paragraph, background information, and sequence of activities accompany each unit. The unit on trees offers a creative way for students to act out the life cycle, which is described in wonderful detail. The student sheets include an overview that explains what is happening and presents a schoolyard challenge. Students collect data and graph and compare results. At the end of each unit, students create their own investigation. All copy masters are included with and without answers. Nature at Your Doostep provides a way to tap into children's curiosity, wonder, and upper level thinking skills. -Teri Cosentino, Science and Children, April 1998
