SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Social Science Strand, Unit 9, Grade 3, Supplement & Ditto Packet.
Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
Designed for use with unit nine of the grade three social science strand, this supplement and ditto packet contains visual aids to help the teacher carry out the activities described in the teacher's guide to this strand. Seatwork for individual students as well as material for group activities is included. Language on materials to be used in the classroom is in Spanish, with brief introductions to the supplement and ditto packet in Spanish and English. Expanding the conceptual field of the child in terms of the nation as a community, the materials are used to underscore the concepts of interdependence, cooperation, societal control, traditions, cultural change, power, and conflict. Illustrations are provided to help stimulate oral language and conceptual development; some are designed to be cut out for manipulation for small groups and individuals, and others are full size to be left intact. Supplement pictures serve as visuals for class discussion of such topics as story content and feelings of the characters portrayed. Other illustrations show historical landmarks and changes in the physical environment. Maps are used to trace early exploration routes, show state locations, and identify earth zones. Written exercises include matching and fill-in-the-blanks type activities and are intended to be presented under supervision. (DS)
