Teaching About Interdependence in a Peaceful World. No. 5418.
United Nations Children's Fund, New York, NY. United States Committee.
Designed for elementary-grade students, these resource materials provide activities which relate the global concepts of peace and interdependence to the direct experience of the child. Subunits on world food supply, world health, and the world mail system use simulation and role-playing activities to help learners see how the things that they consume, their daily health, and the delivery of mail to and from their communities are all interdependent. Also included in the materials are a teacher's guide to strategies of teaching interdependence, a descriptive essay on children and war, and an annotated listing of related materials. Hard copy, available through UNICEF, contains additional materials which can be used in the classroom activities. They are United Nations envelopes, Global Independence Stamps sheet, UNICEF stamp order form, Universal Children's Day Stamps sheet and guide, World Health Organization brochure, "UNICEF's World 'Health Issue'" newsletter, International Vaccination Certificate, Facts about UNICEF brochure, Planetary Citizens bumper sticker, UNICEF poster, United Nations Development Program brochures and poster, and a 1975-76 UNICEF publications catalog.
