Project NECESSITIES, Phase III. Volume V: Teaching Materials for Second and Third Grades.
Abt Associates, Inc., Cambridge, MA.
Part III, Volume V, Part A of Project NECESSITIES consists of 6 units intended for 2nd-grade American Indian (including Eskimo) children. Activities include music, pantomime, and drama to allow the student and teacher to develop their own classroom version of the story of creation so that the student learns the difference between fact and truth. Supplementary materials ("Long Ago When There Was Darkness and All Things Were Yet to Be Made" and "Animals, Climate and Terrain") needed to teach these social studies units are appended. Part B, Using the Land, is intended for 3rd-grade children and consists of 3 units. The units are designed to provide the Indian child with a knowledge of elementary economic concepts which are tied directly to the land as the primary economic resource for meeting man's needs. Supplementary material needed to teach Part B is "Egegik and Shageluk" which is appended. In Parts A and B, each set of classroom activities which precedes the instructional narratives is meant to provide a reference for several days of teaching. Each includes a short overview of the activity itself and indicates the materials and equipment needed to carry out the activity. (LS)
