Developed by the Small Schools Career Education Development Project, the guide, divided into 6 units, provides 279 activities for math and language instruction in grades 1-6. Units are titled: Bank, Grocery Store, Hardware Store, Pandora's Box, Restaurant, and Streets, Bikes, and Highways. Both math and language activities are provided for each unit. An activity number, grade level, a concept, and unit name (e.g., Bank/math) are given for each activity. Activity topics include: addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, money values, order of numbers, graphs, check writing, percentages, classification, sequence, story writing, creative dramatics, job descriptions, business letters, geometrical concepts, farenheit and celsius, initial sounds, capitalization, adjectives, abbreviations, singular/plural, syllabication, Haiku, measurements, metrics, spelling and vocabulary, communications, word origins, paragraphs, outlines, want ads, greater and lesser, fractions, verbs, and parts of speech. Five ways to use the activities are suggested: revising and expanding the activities to meet student needs; developing the activities into units; incorporating single activities into mini field trips for 3-5 students; combining several activities into a group field trip; and using the activities as extra credit projects, math and language center activities, and after school projects.
