Project CHOICE: #61. A Career Unit for Grades 5 and 6. Astronomers. (Science and Engineering Occupations Career Cluster).
Kern County Superintendent of Schools, Bakersfield, CA.
This teaching unit, Astronomers, is one in a series of curriculum guides developed by Project CHOICE (Children Have Options in Career Education) to provide the classroom teacher with a source of career-related activities linking 5th and 6th grade elementary classroom experiences with the world of work. These seven lessons on astronomy introduce career possibilities in astronomy by reviewing basic information about astronomy and exploring how astronomers do their work, their job opportunities, their job requirements, and instruments they use. An introductory section gives the rationale for the unit, goals, performance objectives, entry-level assessment, and evaluation. A list of suggested instructional materials, such as films, filmstrips, books, community resources, and art supplies, is included in this section. Each lesson contains a statement of purpose, materials needed for the lesson, an introductory statement, class activities, and a summary activity. Written materials (such as worksheets, surveys, and task cards) are included where feasible. (MEK)
