Education for Survival; A Social Studies and Science Curriculum Guide for Grades 1, 2, 3.
Grubman, Ruth W.; And Others
This book is one of a series on Education For Survival and integrates a conservation curriculum into a social studies and science program for grades 1, 2, and 3. It was developed to help lead young people to an awareness of environmental problems which confront our society. The first chapter presents a resume of all social science curriculum units to show how the conservation and family life units in the guide are interwoven within the existing curriculum. Conservation and environmental interdependence concepts are explicitly developed for each unit within each grade accompanied by numerous activities and aids, including classroom experiments, suggestions for field trips, and supplemental activities from which the teacher might choose. Units of grade 1 emphasize the home, plants and animals, tree conservation, and rural and urban family life while grade 2 stresses recreational facilities, water, plants, animals, and community life; grade 3 deals with a comparative study of Indians and early settlers, machines, urban life, and the U.S. today.
