The Earth as the Home of Man. Kindergarten. Resource Units I Through V.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Project Social Studies Curriculum Center.
Five resource units constitute the Kindergarten level of the Project Social Studies curriculum. The five units, on the theme of earth as the home of man, are preceded by a grid showing the concepts, generalizations, sequential development of skills, and attitudes appropriate to each unit. All the units follow a similar format, consisting of an introduction and list of objectives, concepts, generalizations and skills, with the main body aligning objectives, content outline, teaching procedures and materials of instruction for the entire unit. Unit I, Earth as the Home of Man, introduces the meaning of specific geographic concepts, observational techniques, and knowledge of map symbols. Unit II, A World of Many People, acquaints children with people that live around the world through the medium of picture story books. Unit III, Our Global Earth, deals with concepts of geographic representation, site concepts, and concepts concerned with the earth as a globe. Unit IV, Man Changes the Earth, emphasizes an understanding of the processes by which man and nature change the physical environment. Unit V, A Home of Varied Resources, focuses on the concepts of diversity, interrelatedness, and spatial location. (Author/KSM)
