Abstract

The objectives of this research were 1) to synthesize environmental knowledge and 2) to design Walk Rally activities for conveying environmental knowledge to elementary students by blending environmental knowledge from the basic education core curriculum with local niches. The sample consisted of 30 students collected using purposive sampling from elementary schools located alongside of the Damnoen Saduak canal. Research tools were the learning outcomes test of the 30 students and the recording form of 6 extracurricular experts. The results showed that the environmental knowledge for elementary students in the basic education core curriculum can be inserted into 3 learning standards: (1) science, (2) social studies religion and culture, and (3) occupations and technology. The suitable environmental knowledge was 5 water quality indicators of Damnoen Saduak canal: (1) fish, (2) seaweed and water hyacinth, (3) nitrate, (4) dissolve oxygen, and (5) the odor, color, and turbidity of water. Moreover, the process revealed that Walk Rally activities have been designed to be suitable learner development activities by the basic education core curriculum due to effective learning outcomes, location and distance between the activity bases, content and knowledge, learning objectives, and procedures and activities. In addition, this research can be developed to provide local curriculum for local schools around study area in the future.
