Resource and Production, A Primary Unit in Cultural Geography. Pupil Text and Workbook and Teacher Manual.
This is an instructional unit in cultural geography for the primary grades. The major objective of the unit, which is comprised of a Pupil Text/Workbook and Teacher Manual, is to develop the geographic concepts labeled resource and production. Teaching strategies used include the Pestalozzian method of asking leading questions to draw the students through the study to the desired conclusions, preparation of displays, paper-cutting activities, and field trips. Among the twenty lessons included are the following: What is a Resource; Natural and Cultural Resources; Renewable and Non-renewable Resources; Technology; Man's Needs and Resources; Conservation of Resources; Local Resource Use; What is Production; Primary Production; Secondary Production; Tertiary Production; Production, Technology, and Culture. Detailed lesson plans include teacher background material, teaching procedure, resource materials, and suggested supplementary activities. In the pupil text each new concept is defined, illustrated by word and picture examples, and transfer by application is tested by a question. (Author/RM)
