Teacher's Guide: Social Studies, 2.

Part of K-12 sequential series, this teacher's guide provides objectives and activities for social studies students in grade 2. Five major sections concentrate on learning, inquiry, and discussion skills, concepts, and values and moral reasoning. Learning skills include listening, speaking, viewing, reading, writing, map, and statistical abilities. Students follow oral directions, gather data from listening to recordings, role play a story they have made up, classify and draw inferences from photographs, unscramble a sequence of events, write sentences about the street where they live, and construct maps and interpret map symbols. Inquiry skills include noting similarities and differences, classifying, drawing inferences, generalizing, and hypothesizing. Students compare historical changes in classrooms, classify heights of their classmates, make inferences from photographs, and hypothesize about how fire was discovered. Concepts stressed are conflict, interdependence, and communication. Students simulate a worker/manager conflict, plan a park for children and older adults, and examine the mutual dependence in a water system. Discussion skills involve organizing and contributing to a discussion group. Students work in groups for show and tell and play games that teach about keeping on the topic. Strategies for discussing four moral dilemmas, and steps in decision making are outlined. Many activities rely on the Holt Data Bank program for readings. (KC)
