This is number 10 in a series of resource manuals consisting of 11 sequenced curriculum guides developed by the Demonstration and Research Center for Early Education (DARCEE) for use in early childhood education programs. Emphasis is placed on the development of sensory, abstracting and mediating, and response skills. The projected order of the units is: (1) All About Me, (2) Plants, (3) Autumn, (4) Home and Family, (5) Winter, (6) Forest Animals, (7) Neighborhood and Community, (8) Farm Animals, (9) Spring, (10) Transportation, (11) Farm Crops. Each unit is intended to build upon skills developed in the preceding ones. The tenth unit, "Transportation," is primarily a social studies unit. The major content objectives are to develop the child's awareness and understanding of the various ways of transporting people and goods and the particular characteristics and uses of different vehicles. The suggested time for the unit is two to three weeks. Instructional activities are presented side by side with basic skills to be developed, and space is provided for teachers to outline additional activities and skills. The appendix includes patterns for teacher-made materials. (MS)
