Arizona History Resource Guide: A Resource Guide for Arizona Classroom Teachers.
Arizona State Dept. of Education, Phoenix.
The resource guide is structured for Arizona history and social studies teachers as an aid in planning classroom activities for kindergarten through grade 12. Developed as part of the Bicentennial program, the guide focuses on the themes of heritage, festival, and horizons. The heritage section furnishes a historical perspective for organizing projects. A parallel chronology lists significant events in American and Arizona history from 985 A.D. to 1975. Famous United States and Arizona symbols are illustrated, and national and state flags are represented as they changed throughout history. Geography and history of each of the 14 Arizona counties are described. A bibliography of 43 books and 17 historical societies concludes this section. Activities which are suggested in the festival section are categorized as paper-and-pencil, speaking, environmental, music, exhibits, arts and crafts, and patriotic and traditional holidays. These include discussion of the meaning of the Pledge of Allegiance, collecting early farm tools, and comparing maps of Columbus' time and the present. The horizons section lists concepts for possible projects in areas of careers, environmental study, medicine, and space. A selected bibliography of over 300 references about colonial life and Arizona state history concludes the guide. (AV)
