Educational goals and objectives, student activities, and visual aids are included in this guide to a three-dimensional design unit that combines creative art and industrial arts skills. Course goals include challenging students' creative skills, encouraging student interaction and successful group work, and providing an atmosphere of fun and adventure. Specific educational objectives relate to skillful use of handtools, identifying native New England trees, and completing three-dimensional designs in wood. A schedule for the 10-week unit outlines activities including two field trips to collect raw materials for wood carving, team work (two art students, two industrial arts students) on wood sculptures, designing and building totem poles, and exhibiting class projects. Student materials provided in the guide are forms for self evaluation and peer evaluation of design projects, an excerpt from "Three Days to See" by Helen Keller, and illustrations used to develop design skills. A teacher evaluation lists successful outcomes of the course, emphasizing the role of field trips, group work, and interdisciplinary teaching. (JH)
