Cortland-Madison Board of Cooperative Educational Services, Cortland, NY.
Part of a K-12 sequential series, this teacher's guide provides objectives and activities for social studies students in kindergarten and first grade. Five major sections cover learning, inquiry, and discussion skills, concepts, and values and moral reasoning. Learning skills include listening, speaking, viewing, reading, writing, and map and statistical abilities. Students play singing games, role play, analyze and classify photographs, construct and label a map, and analyze statistics. Inquiry skills include noting similarities and differences, generalizing, classifying, drawing inferences and hypothesizing. Students compare two animals, people from different cultures, and themselves now and when they were babies; make inferences from photographs; and form hypotheses about life in another country. Concepts covered are conflict, interdependence, and communication. Students discuss anger, rules and signs; analyze how parts of their bodies depend on other parts; and play the rumor game. Discussion skills stress group games. Moral dilemmas are centered around common classroom and playground situations. Values clarification is taught through an "All About Me" book, discussions, and interviews with classmates. Sources for many materials are from the Holt Data Bank program. (KC)
