This is the first of two social science guides designed for the bilingual, multicultural classroom. This guide was originally intended for the fifth grade though it is appropriate for use in other elementary grades and possibly some junior high classes. The guide may be used independently or as a supplement to other social studies programs. Activities may be done in writing or orally, in English or Spanish, with the entire class, in small groups, or individually. Fifteen curriculum lessons are presented: (1) Studying Man: Adaptation; (2) The Legend of the Eagle and the Serpent; (3) The Building of a City-Tenochtitlan; (4) All Occupations are Important; (5) Ways of Buying; (6) The Exploration and Development of the Southwest; (7) Mexican Americans: Contributions, Successes, Challenges; (8) Lincoln, Juarez, King; (9) Who is a Citizen; (10) The Power of the Vote; (11) The Legislature - Making Laws to Run a Nation; (12) The Presidency - Executing the Laws; (13) The Judiciary - Interpreting the Laws; (14) Why People Use Drugs; (15) Places of Worship in my Barrio. The lessons give title, concept, behavioral objectives, vocabulary, recommended materials and ways to use them, activities, evaluation, and optional activities. A bibliography and answer key for worksheets are also included. (Author/CLK)
