Part of a K-12 sequential series, this teacher's guide presents objectives and activities for social studies students in grade 3. Five major sections concentrate on learning, inquiry, and discussion skills, concepts, and values and moral reasoning. Learning skills stress listening, speaking, viewing, reading, writing, map, and statistical abilities. Students draw conclusions from listening to records, participate in show and tell, classify and make generalizations from photographs, write a short essay, and recognize distortions in graphic presentations. Inquiry skills include noting similarities and differences, classifying, drawing inferences, generalizing, and hypothesizing. Students compare ancient and modern farming methods, make inferences about pollution from a map of Lake Erie, generalize about assembly line production, and discuss supply and demand. Concepts focus on conflict, interdependence and communication. Groups of students discuss conflicts occurring during their planning of a city and discuss how a candy bar illustrates the working of a global system. Communication games are also outlined. Discussion skills are developed through group games, listening to tapes, and examining non-verbal behavior. Finally, four moral dilemmas, strategies for group discussion, and steps in decision making are provided. Many activities require readings from the Holt Data Bank program. (KC)
