Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge.
Prepared by the vocational education division of a state department of education and compiled by industrial arts educators, this resource guide provides a conceptual basis for the elementary teacher using industrial arts as a means of introducing children to industrial processes and orienting them to the physical and material world. Included in the guide are manipulative activities and experiences that will help to broaden the child's knowledge about the interdependence of people and the world of work as it involves them and their families.

An example of a resource unit for primary level is given in detail including: (1) purposes, (2) learning activities, (3) skills developed, and (4) resource materials. Included in the guide are: (1) a list of safety rules for the teacher, (2) source of supplies, (3) an evaluation checklist, (4) suggestions for furniture, (5) an outline for organizing instructional plans and (6) one for studying basic raw materials of industry.
