The kindergarten instructional unit, part of a grade school level career education series, is designed to assist learners in relating present experiences to past and future ones. Before the main body of the lessons is described field testing results are reported and key items are presented: the concepts, the estimated instructional time, the vocabulary introduced, the resources required, and the instructor preparation tasks. Instructional procedures are presented in three sections--an introduction, learners' tasks, and a summary. Some supplemental activities are presented, strategy and resource profiles provided, and assessment procedures outlined. The unit's primary intent is to create an awareness of tools, equipment, and materials used in the world of work. It also acquaints the learner with the early conception and development of tools to promote an understanding of the need for tools and how they have increased man's efficiency, skillfulness, and productivity. The learner is encouraged to envision himself as a worker. The 10-hour unit develops skills in the areas of art, language, and social studies, and is applicable to both large and small groups. Field test teachers suggested that the pictures provided were unsuitable for the kindergarten level, and that substitutes be found. (MW)
