Materials in this curriculum guide for a fourth grade course on Hawaii prior to Western contact use a cross-cultural approach to teach about that state's multicultural heritage. Following an introduction, which provides a course outline and objectives, nine study units cover geography, migration, canoe building, land division, society and government, agriculture, fishing, shelter, and traditional cloth-making. Each unit is organized according to the following format: overview, rationale, teacher background information, generalizations, concepts, objectives, reference index, resource bibliography, and extensive development of lessons and activities to supplement the unit. Drawings also supplement curriculum materials. Appendices provide additional background material, including readings on folklore, the traditional extended family, traditional social mores and responsibilities, religion, social classes, and symbols of royalty. An index to references concludes the guide. (LP)
