Classroom Learning Activities for Social Studies.
Adams, Jan; And Others
Developed as an aid to Oklahoma educators, these easily duplicated learning activities can be used as a supplement in elementary and secondary social studies courses. Some of the teacher-developed activities are self-contained, while others require the use of publisher-available books and films. There are three major sections: Elementary; Middle School/Junior High; and Senior High. Elementary-level activities deal with self-concept, personal space, family, neighborhoods, rules, laws, needs, Oklahoma history, U.S. history, and the student's role in the world. At the middle school/junior high and senior high levels, activities are grouped by discipline, including U.S. history, economics, geography, government/civics, Oklahoma history, American studies, psychology, sociology, world history/cultures, and general social studies. Some examples of the types of activities included follow. Elementary students prepare bulletin boards, conduct surveys, interview senior citizens, and write a list of rules that will govern their class. Middle, junior, and senior high students participate in U.S. history skits, prepare budgets, draw maps of their neighborhoods, and listen to guest speakers. (RM)
