Social Studies Program Guide, K-3: Primary Grades.
Spokane School District 81, WA.
This curriculum guide is the first of four guides which identify the scope, sequence, goals, and resources for the social studies program of the Spokane public schools. Suggested are social studies materials, resources, and activities for kindergarten and primary grade levels. Emphasizing social studies knowledge and skill development, the guide outlines lessons on all social science disciplines, with particular emphasis on psychology, economics, geography; social studies skills; and decision making. The major objective of the curriculum is to help students become responsible citizens. Topics at the primary level include effective citizenship, self-respect, individual decision-making criteria, competency in social decision making, diminishing natural resources, individual survival, effects of physical geography on human activities, and group influences on the individual. A description of the subject area and a chart of sequential skills begin each section, followed by an outline of activities, resources, and objectives pertinent to each grade level. Learning activities involve students in interpreting photographs, illustrations, and films; group discussion; summarizing paragraphs; drawing charts and graphs; tape recording interviews and group discussions; show and tell; and map, graph, and measuring activities. A directory of program materials by grade level and evaluation information conclude the document. (Author/DB)
