Green Power: Clothing. Grade Two, Unit One, 2.1. Comprehensive Social Studies Curriculum for the Inner City.
Anderson, Mary Louise
The second unit of the second grade level of the Focus on Inner City Social Studies (FICSS) series (see SO 008 271) continues to build upon the economic principles introduced in grade one. Specifically, the focus is on the procurement of essential and non-essential clothing. The learning activities help students to learn the sources of fabrics, clothing needs according to the season, styles and fads, and the wise use of financial resources when procuring clothes. The developers encourage critical thinking in more reasoned clothing purchases by students as well as their families and differentiating between wants and needs. The document includes an introduction to the unit, essential source materials; knowledge, skill, and behavioral objectives; learning activities and study questions; and student and teacher resources. The unit can serve as a supplement to existing social studies curricula in accordance with the needs and problems of an urban society. (Author/JR)
