OBJECTIVES 
      Enjoyment 
Concern    > Awareness 
Enjoyment - A tour should be a happy experience for the child. 
Awareness - A tour should encourage discovery. A child becomes aware by 
               using all his senses -- by looking closely, listening, touching,
               and smelling. 
Concern     --Appreciation and concern for preservation of our natural 
               resources is essential for all citizens. 
                       EXPLANATION OF MATERIALS 
                              Ho-nee-um Trail 
     A portion of the Arboretum within the city limits of Madison was chosen
for development of a nature trail suitable for use by school classes. Seasonal
and special emphasis slide tours of the area are planned for use by classes
preparing for an actual trip. Each tour emphasizes different themes - all
chosen 
to promote the objectives above. 
     Inserted in the script are bracketed paragraphs providing the teacher
with 
additional information. Questions in the script are designed to encourage
class 
discussion during the viewing time. 
      For an actual walk along the trail at a leisurely pace at least an
hour 
should be allowed.
