Social Studies for Elementary Grade Levels. Curriculum Development Teaching Guide No. 77.
Nova Scotia Dept. of Education, Halifax.
A Canadian elementary level social studies curriculum combines the study of home, school, and community with the broader study of the nation and world through a multi-spiral approach. Described are the following units: the primary grade level (orientation, self, home, neighborhood, and school), grade 1 (families), grade 2 (communities), grade 3 (Canadian communities), grade 4 (people and their changing environment), grade 5 (Canada and the world's people), and grade 6 (Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada). The format for each unit is the same: a summary of content, time framework, skills, and objectives is followed by a chart outlining the themes, objectives, and skills. Themes are presented in the form of questions which the students should be able to answer upon completion of their study. A more detailed chart tags each objective to a number of activities, arranged in order of difficulty. Also included in this program description are sections containing primary to grade 3 resource materials, grades 4-6 resources, suggested methods and activities, and general resources for social studies teachers.
