Natural Resources and Career Awareness: A Teacher's Guide for Grades K-6.
Ward, George C.
The materials in this teacher's guide have three general divisions that are based on a sequential progression from kindergarten through grade six. Section A (kindergarten through two) explores the world of the child and divides this world into identifiable study groups. Section B (third and fourth grades) deals with the needs of living things and relates them to those of natural resources. Section C (fifth and sixth grades) offers material that will help children become aware of specific information about the interrelationships that exist among natural resources. Career information is included in each section. Each section is subdivided into nine topics (our world, needs, soil, plants, wildlife, water, air, land space, and minerals) which are broken down into goals, suggested activities, worksheets, teacher's notes, and an evaluation. Included are three appendixes: lists of reference books for early elementary children, middle elementary school children, and for elementary school teachers. (Author/BP)
