Project NECESSITIES, Phase III. Volume IV: Teaching Materials for Kindergarten and First Grade.
Abt Associates, Inc., Cambridge, MA.
Phase III, Volume IV, Part A of Project NECESSITIES consists of 10 activities intended for kindergarten-aged American Indian (including Eskimo) children. Some of the supplementary materials needed to teach these activities ("Symbol Formation" and "An Animal Alphabet") are appended. The unit, entitled Learning to Communicate, begins with non-verbal activities and ends with activities involving symbolic writing. Part B, (People, Places and Things) for 1st graders is divided into 3 sub-units: Homes; Homes and Schools; and School, Land and Community. The sub-units are designed to provide the Indian student with a knowledge not only of his own way of life but also of the way other people live. Each set of classroom activities which precedes the instructional narratives is meant to provide a reference for several days of teaching. Each includes a short overview of the activity itself and indicates the materials and equipment needed to carry out the activity. (LS)
