Social Studies.
Bieber, Edward
The product of a Special Studies Institute, this teacher developed resource guide for the emotionally handicapped (K-6) presents social study concepts and activities relative to education in the urban out-of-doors. Focus is on the study of man (past, present, and future) interacting with his environment. Listed below are activity examples: (1) Take a walk around your block, counting the numbers and kinds of occupations you can observe. Would you observe differences if it were a 100 years ago? (2) Take a walk observing building materials, similarities, and utility. Which came first, form or function? (3) Construct a neighborhood map, including North-South orientation, latitude, longitude, contour lines. (4) Construct an underground map of your neighborhood, including wires, pipes, basements, and sewers using surface features (fire hydrants, sewer plates) to help determine the map. (5) Pretend you have come back to this era from the future and the only things left are letters and numbers. What would you be able to deduce? (6) Go outside and discover some of man's symbols (cross, fence). (7) Look at man's interacting systems (sanitation, fire, water) and find out more about them by interviewing people and comparing these systems with those of other times and cultures. (8) How many things can you find in your neighborhood that are concerned with safety (crosswalks, radial tires, rubber bumpers)? (JC)
