The Physical and Cultural Limits to Economic Growth. Instructional Activities Series.
De King, Leon R.
This unit, one in a set of elementary teacher-developed geography materials, is based on "Geographic Sample Study" and "Teacher's Manual for Geographic Sample Study" from the Research and Development Center for Teacher Education, Austin, Texas. Intended for intermediate-level students, the inquiry-oriented case study unit on economic growth involves choosing between being a farmer or being a rancher. The major objectives are to stimulate inquiry processes of geographic field study and to provide an experiential framework for learning geographic concepts. A definition of the Sample Study, an overview of topics, examples of one topic, a map activity, and a chart activity are provided. See SO 009 140 for a general description and explanation of the elementary and secondary units comprising this series. (ND)
