A Teaching Guide and Experience Units K-12. Social Studies. Grade One.
Arapahoe County School District 6, Littleton, CO.
The unit experiences for the K-12 curriculum, including these for grade 1, were designed by the district staff to achieve a more comprehensive knowledge of the world in which we live; to develop the ability to think critically and creatively; to use inquiry and problem solving skills in human relations situations; to understand major social studies concepts; to understand and use wisely the cultural and physical resources of the world; and, to develop the skills and attitudes needed to cope with change. The first grade study of comparative family living will help the student become aware of the similarities and differences in various family patterns. Overview, objectives, motivational, developmental, and review activities, and content for each of the sub-units are summarized: 1) School Environment --physical plant school personnel, safety, things to do, and individual responsibility to the group; 2) Neighborhood Environment -- concept, changes, good citizenship, the urban and rural neighborhood; 3) Comparative Family Living --local, Hawaiian, Alaskan, Japanese, families; 4) Geography --personal and environmental directions, globes, and maps; 5) Our Flag and Country --leadership and citizenship, historical leaders and events; 6) Holidays and Special Occasions and Seasons.
