Teacher's Guide to Grouping Birds: The MATCH Box Project; Prototype Edition.
Baird, James; And Others
To introduce kindergarten-second grade children to the process of classification, a multimedia kit has been assembled. Mounted bird specimens, films, data cards, books, stickers and flash cards are provided. The classifying activities and the collecting of data from the bird mounts and films are all structured around games. Eight lesson plans are printed on cards giving the materials needed, the suggested procedure, and the length of time the activity is expected to last. Background information is provided to help the teacher answer common questions. A list is provided of other material and activities to follow up after the kit is returned. A short history of the MATCH Box Project prefaces the guide. (JY)
