Creating Greeting Cards: A Business Brings Pleasure.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Center for Vocational and Technical Education.
The learning experiences in the teacher's guide provide second, third, and fourth grade students at the primary level with the opportunity to participate in the creation and production of greeting cards. Students explore different kinds of cards and become involved in the production process of a simulated greeting card company. They learn about greeting cards as a form of communication and about the cooperative effort required for mass production. The learning activities are designed to develop an appreciation of the habits and skills required for completing a task: adequate preparation, orderly approach, meeting responsibilities and performance standards, safe work habits, physical skills, recurring production needs, and creativity. Subject areas for which the materials in the guide have potential are social studies, arts, language, and applied math. 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-coordinated resource materials include a poster set, evaluation instruments, and resource and worksheets. (Author/NJ)
