This handbook provides a guide for elementary school teachers in developing a curriculum around five general concepts: there is dignity in all work; the life of a culture depends on its workers who produce goods and services; there are many different kinds of work; mankind uses tools for work; and work has rewards. Each section covers a different level of concept exploration. The first level outlines general concepts, more specific sub-concepts, behavioral objectives for the child in terms of concept investigation, and various suggestions for teachers to relate the behavioral objectives and concepts to the areas of language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. Further sections list specific teacher aids and activities used to reinforce those concepts that apply to career development. The areas of art, music, physical education, and tool technology are also explored in terms of career development concepts. Lists of books, stories, films, songs, records, art activities, music activities, puzzles, games, physical activities, and tool technology projects are included. (KP)
