The learning experiences in the teacher's guide are intended to acquaint students at the second and third grade levels with the food industry--the goods and services it provides, the workers it employs, and some of the basic skills the consumer needs. The supermarket, that segment of the food industry most familiar to primary students, is the focal point of study. As they observe and interview supermarket workers on the job, students gain some understanding of the job activities and working conditions. In a culminating activity, students role play customers and supermarket workers, applying arithmetic and reading skills as they make shopping decisions. Subject areas for which the materials in the guide have potential are social studies and mathematics. Each set of learning experiences contains a student objective, set overview, resource list, teacher-preparation tasks, learning activities, and suggestions for evaluation-summary activities. Activity-oriented resource materials are included. (Author/NJ)
