Weather: A Learning Center Approach to the Teaching of Social Studies. Instructional Activities Series.
This unit, one in a series of teacher-developed materials for elementary geography, is based on a part of a social studies textbook, "Topics of Life," Book Two. One section proposes a learning center environment to make learning experiences in social studies possible throughout the entire school day. The text's section has been expanded for this unit into 17 learning stations adapted to various abilities of second-grade students. An instructional objective is stated for each learning station. Student experiences are provided in each area of the curriculum. The unit concludes with suggestions for beginning the learning center, evaluation suggestions, and a list of references. See SO 009 140 for a general description and explanation of the elementary and secondary sets that comprise this series. (Author/ND)
