This elementary curriculum is a vehicle to provide manipulative activities that reinforce academic skills through meaningful, relevant, activity-based awareness of modern society. The twenty-six activity plans included in the curriculum place a major emphasis upon realistic or concrete experiences that deal with the manipulation and exploration of materials, tools, and processes. Among the activity plans included are (1) All American Popcorn, (2) Building Contractors Construct a Wren House, (3) Flower Cube on the Assembly Line, (4) Planter Box, and (5) Wooden Coasters. Each activity plan follows a typical format: activity title, area titles and major concepts, description of activity and enrichment, related careers, alternate activity, supplies, equipment, activity procedures, followup ideas, evaluation, health and safety procedures, tips to the teacher, and content material. A final section contains seven additional activity ideas. The game directions for nutrient cards and a permission letter are appended. (LRA)
