Aquino-Mackles, Alexis; And Others
Intended to help elementary and intermediate level students develop a global perspective, this manual contains ready-to-use activities dealing with the concept of myself and others. The materials can be used in courses in the social studies, language arts, mathematics, arts, and science, or in interdisciplinary courses. There are four parts to the manual. The first three parts, intended for the primary grades, contain activities to help students explore how they are interconnected with other people in the school, in the neighborhood, and in the community and recognize similarities between their lives and concerns and those of people in other cultures. Activities involve students in exploring their neighborhood, making a community quilt, examining systems to which they belong, and examining lullabies from various cultures. The activities in the fourth part, intended for intermediate students, help students learn about the larger world, e.g., students examine poetry and short stories to see how people from different cultures like animals. Information provided for each activity includes purpose, areas of study, suggested time, objectives, and specific teacher instructions. (RM)
