Farm Crops: Unit Manual Eleven. Curriculum Guide.
Lewis, Ann; And Others
This is number 11 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 eleventh unit, "Farm Crops," is primarily a social studies unit covering crops and foods from field to market. The major content objective is to develop children's understanding of where the food they eats comes from and the steps involved in growing and marketing it. 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. A list of instructional materials and their sources is given. The appendix includes patterns for teacher-made materials. (MS)
