Two great American writers, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau, exemplify these attitudes. If we can get students to approach Emerson’s and Thoreau’s level of wonder and appreciation, we as teachers will have not only achieved The Standards but have assured a greater likelihood of future environmental preservation as well. They can get started by trying the activities featured in this issue of Science Scope.
