Prepared as an aid to teachers, the document contains two parts intended to help correlate instruction of industrial arts at the elementary level with the recommended curriculum content in the Wisconsin Guide to Local Curriculum Improvement in Industrial Education, K-12. Pertaining to field objectives 1-4 in the guide, Industry for the Elementary Grades outlines basic objectives and suggests activities for working in the areas of communications, construction, energy, transportation, materials, processes, and services. It is emphasized that the second section, Example Elementary Unit, is intended to provide teachers with ideas, suggestions for activities, content organization, and format which could be used in the implementation of any part of the guide. The sample unit deals with home construction and includes detailed instructions for building a model house and a game intended to familiarize students with hand tools. Each of the four field objectives is supplemented by one or more terminal objectives, enabling objectives, methods which can be used, media and materials suggested and required, and methods the teacher can use to evaluate student progress.
