Kern County Superintendent of Schools, Bakersfield, CA.
This teaching unit, Forestry, 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 nine lessons on forestry explore the many occupations related to preserving and maintaining forests, including the skills and attitudes necessary to perform these jobs. 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)
