EXPLORING RIVERS AND STREAMS: A cross-curricular study pack. Key Stages 2 and 3. By Tony Pearce. Hampshire County Council, pound;20. Available from the Communications Team, Hampshire. County Council Environment Grouping, Ashburton Court West, The Castle, Winchester SO23 8UD. Tel: 01962 847081

Based around Cove Brook Greenway, a green space close to a stream in north Hampshire, this resource pack contains great classroom resources and extremely useful ideas for the hard-pressed teacher. The teacher's notes, worksheets, maps, plans, an aerial photo, teacing aids and the ready-made classroom activities will help teachers generate resources for their nearest stream, pond or green space. Out-of-classroom activities are recommended and supported in the pack through exercises, with photographs and graphics to stimulate the interest of pupils. This pack is well designed, it covers a wide range of local environmental issues and concerns and considers the ways schools and the community can respond.

Karl Donert is senior lecturer in geography and environmental studies, Liverpool Hope University
