This document describes a social studies unit, primarily composed of various field trips and subsequent classwork related thereto, for the first grade child. It is divided into four sections: (1) community helpers, (2) the trip to the zoo, (3) the train trip, and (4) a trip to a dairy farm. The document illustrates several trips the children of a first grade class participated in and the discussions between teacher and pupils that followed. In the first section there is a discussion of fathers and their vocations and of trips to the post office, public library, police station, fire station, and a service station. In the other three sections similar illustrations are given of other field trips and the range of related classroom activities that can be arranged. (WD)
