Abstract: The use of the educational resources which are available in the community environment is becoming; increasingly important. Students are no longer limited to studying the textbook and to class discussions. They not only want to study about things, but they want to see them. After topics in the textbook have been studied, it is imperative that the community resources be utilized to make the textbook material more meaningful. Sometimes it is difficult to understand abstract material, but when one can take a trip and actually see it, he will comprehend it better. In order to stimulate the interest of a class in some special topic, the educational resources of a community should be used. Often when students do not have a desire to learn more about certain topics, the wine use of the community resources may be effective in arousing their interest.
