Natural Resources and Career Awareness. A Teacher's Guide for Grades K-6.
Ward, George C.
Career education is a comprehensive, systematic, and cohesive plan of instruction that provides each student the opportunity to plan and prepare for a meaningful and satisfying role as a working member of society. This guide was designed to offer teachers a sequenced program of suggested topics and learning activities in the natural resources, and to offer information regarding careers in natural resources. The guide is divided into three sections that are based on a sequential progression from kindergarten through grade six. Section A (K-1-2) explores the world of the child and divided this world into identifiable study groups. Section B (grades 3-4) deals with the needs of living things and relates them to the use of natural resources. Section C (grades 5-6) offers material that will help children become aware of specific information about interrelationships that exist among natural resources. Career information is included in each section. The sections are subdivided into a number of topics. Each topic includes a goal statement, activities, worksheets, teacher's notes and evaluation strategies. Reference materials are listed in the appendices. (Author/TK)
