Blouin, Virginia; And Others
This resource unit on the study of Europe at the sixth grade level focuses on European culture as seen through five major strands from the social sciences: anthropology-sociology, history, geography, economics, and political science. Among objectives which the student is to achieve are the following: 1) identify on a map major European regions, countries, geographical features, cities, and seaports; 2) given a topographical map, list the advantages and disadvantages of building a city at a given location; 3) given a country in Europe, show through specific examples how various groups and regions are intradependent; 4) given families in varying European countries, identify similarities and differences in family organization, socialization, customs, and values; 5) given a form of government, list the major characteristics of this government and impact this government has on its people; and 6) having selected a European country, develop a specialty report and share it with the class. Teaching strategies include questioning techniques, class discussion, problem solving, games, individual and group projects, and research. Behavioral objectives, resource media, and teaching strategies are provided. A Handbook for Preparing a Pupil Specialty on Europe and a Research Guidebook for Social Studies to be used by students are provided in the appendix. (RM)
