Hawaiian Studies Curriculum Guide. Grade 4.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of Instructional Services.
This curriculum guide to Hawaiian Studies for fourth graders is designed to be used in conjunction with a social studies guide called "Early Hawaiian Life." The curriculum guide is divided into ten units dealing with the following topics: geography; migration-canoe building; land division; society and government--family; society and government--social structure; society and government--religion; food--agriculture; food--fishing; shelter; and kapa (barkcloth). Each unit is preceded by an overview section which presents at a glance the subject areas into which the Hawaiian Studies instruction is integrated (social studies, science, language arts, health, music art, games and recreation, and in one unit, math); the major lesson topics taken up within each subject area; student objectives; and references to unit appendices which contain teacher/student readings and worksheets, teacher background material, and songs and illustrations. The overview is followed by instructional activities and the appendices. An introduction to the guide includes discussions of the role of the teacher and the Kupuna (Hawaiian-speaking elders) in the program, and of the study of culture through dramatic inquiry. General appendices contain basic Hawaiian vocabulary lists, maps, a list of Hawaiian concepts depicted in the guide's artwork, and bibliographic materials. (KH)
