This guide is separated into the following four age groups: 5-6 years, 7-9 years, 10-12 years, and 13-18 years. Curriculum concepts and learning opportunities are presented more or less sequentially from the basic to the more difficult. Information at the beginning of each age-level section provides a brief summary of the general understanding of death by children at the developmental level. Various concepts are presented at each age level and are organized in the following manner: (1) learning opportunity, (2) objectives, (3) activities, and (4) notes to teacher. At the end of each age-level section, complete bibliographical information is given for resources that have been suggested under each concept. Many of the learning opportunities suggest the use of novels, short stories, poems, and plays. To help the teacher creatively integrate the numerous literary references an outline is included of various approaches in Appendices A and B. There is no provision for student assessment. Options are included under notes to the teacher. (BD)
