A Tri-Curriculum Approach to Learning: Health Education--Social Studies--Career Education. Levels One to Four/Grades One to Six.
Quinn, Jeanette; And Others
The document presents an interdisciplinary unit of study for elementary students which combines social studies, health, and career concepts. The learning experiences are planned so that children will form the desired concepts on their own. Three five-week "learning centers" focus on the human body; food and nutrition; and alcohol, tobacco, and drugs. An introductory section contains charts which show the continuity of each center and the interrelatedness of the subject matter in social studies, health, and careers. For example, during the five weeks spent studying the human body, students learn about the digestive system, role play the responsibilities of being a doctor, and compare the development of frogs and butterflies to simple human anatomy. Activities for this section include drawing, creative writing, filling in the blanks in short stories, looking at transparencies, making jigsaw puzzles of body parts, answering riddles, and explaining the activities in pictures of milkmen, dentists, and physical therapists. A bibliography lists all books, teacher's guides, cassette tapes, filmstrips, records, transparencies, and study prints which are needed to complete each of the three learning centers. (AV)
