Teacher's Guide to the City: The MATCH Box Project; Prototype Edition.
Lee, Tunney; And Others
To introduce children (grades 1-3) to the concept of the city and to give them an appreciation for the relationship that exists between the cities men build and the lives they live in them, a multimedia kit has been assembled. The items in the kit allow the child to explore the city from various viewpoints. By comparing their similarities and differences the child can acquire a reasonable image of what a city is and what happens there. The kit includes photographs, films, books, a model city, and a record. There are 17 lesson plans. Each is printed on a separate card and gives detailed information concerning objectives, materials, and procedures. The teacher may choose the number and order of lessons most suitable for the class. Supplementary information includes a map, a poem, and background information about the contents of the kit. A list of suggested additional materials is provided. The guide is prefaced by a short history of the MATCH Box Project. (JY)
