Science for Grade 1. Connecticut Migratory Children's Program.
Quinones, Juanita; Chang, Sung Wen
This is one of a series of curriculum guides designed to assist bilingual teachers in efforts to provide a coordinated program of studies for students in the Connecticut Migratory Children's Program and for any other students whose native language is Spanish. It is felt that an effort should be made to discover the skill level at which a child is functioning, to choose materials from curriculum guides at that skill level, and to move to more difficult materials when the child is ready. Skills are suggested at given grade levels to provide a logical sequence of skill development. The overall focus of the curriculum guides in the series is on Puerto Rican history and culture. The present guide is for science instruction at the first grade level, and is divided into eight units: (1) Myself, (2) My School, (3) My Family, (4) My Home, (5) My Community, (6) Transportation, (7) Communication, and (8) Animals. Each unit is further divided into skills which combine the topic of the unit with basic scientific concepts that the child must master. Activities for each skill are suggested. A vocabulary list is provided in each unit, and the guide is illustrated with black-and-white drawings. (CLK)
