Pass-Word. Projects Assimilating social Studies with Oral Research Data.
Buckley, Richard Dale, Comp.
Thirty-six social studies projects -- 12 primary and 24 upper elementary -- are described by members of a graduate seminar in elementary social studies. Each project is described according to grade level, subject area, project title, and suggested time limit, which varies from one class period to one semester. These projects result from an oral survey of teachers' choices of the most interesting or meaningful projects they have devised and which they consider worth repeating. Credit is given to the initiating teachers. The following topics are explored: individual feelings, the family, mapping one's community, community helpers, early forms of transportation, food, a Thanksgiving celebration, animals, seasonal changes, people in other lands, local history (Wisconsin), map work, other states, time in relation to environment, newspapers, minority groups, economics, giving directions, city government, war and peace, and consumer economics.
