Kindergarten Social Studies Unit.
Park Forest Public Schools District 163, IL.
A basic introduction to human relations for the kindergarten child is provided in this teacher's guide. The main generalization for the unit is "School is a place where children with different backgrounds meet and work together. Each child contributes his experiences to the group." Some of the supporting ideas in the unit are: 1) Children in school have similar needs: to learn, to have friends, to be accepted; 2) Children in school are different in interests and abilities; and, 3) Children bring to school the different experiences of their own family backgrounds. A large number of learning activities are outlined in detail. Instructional materials suggested are highly diverse, and include audiovisual materials, books, and a curriculum kit available from the Center. A bibliography lists instructional materials cited in the guide and includes availability information. A flannelboard story, puppet story, and songs comprise the appendix. See SO 000 584 for a listing of related documents. (JLB)
