Sixth Grade Interdisciplinary Packet: Science-Social Studies.
Madison Public Schools, WI.
This curriculum guide for sixth graders focuses upon "Who is Man?", "Who am I?" and "Man Needs Man" in an interdisciplinary sequence that combines scientific and social studies ideas and theories. It is hoped that this approach will help the pupil shape positive change within himself and his society. Emphasis is upon pupils gaining both conceptual understandings and developmental skills progressively throughout the year. The course is arranged into five units, each listing concepts, objectives, and activities, with outlines on: 1) "Man and Time: How Do we Know?", emphasizing how time duration and sequence can be used to compare events, and, measured and described in a variety of ways; 2) "Man Changes Through Time", stressing evolutionary theory and man's psychological needs; 3)"Decoding a Message from Early Man"; 4) "Man's Similarities to Other Animals", discussing man's unique abilities as reflected in his achievements; his values as reflected in his culture; and, 5) "Man Needs Man" descriptions of mans social organization needs and achievements. Since it is essential teachers evaluate the course a checklist evaluation instrument is included after each unit. (Author/SJM)
