Wilson, Wanda; Sawatzky, Joyce
Designed to help build basic homemaking skills, this core curriculum instructional package, which was teacher-developed in Oklahoma, is a collection of teaching ideas to promote motivation and learning in the classroom. Activities are included for the following subjects: (1) orientation to Future Homemakers of America; (2) occupational information, such as locating jobs and job success, and specifically about occupations in child care and home economics-related areas; (3) pattern and fabric selection; (4) sewing equipment and techniques; (5) clothing care; (6) consumer awareness and decision making; (7) food and nutrition (covering also specific types of food, such as dairy products and eggs), meal planning, and recipe use; (8) kitchen utensils and table service; (9) safety and sanitation; (10) personal home environment; and (11) family and peer relationships. While the majority of the ideas are games and puzzles, there are also suggestions for skits, bulletin boards, displays, and listing and demonstration of student objectives. Answers to the puzzles are provided at the end. (ELG)
