One of a series of social studies curriculum guides, this publication outlines a second-grade course on neighborhoods. Material is presented in two parts. Part 1, an overview of the program, contains an introduction, a statement of philosophy, an outline of the elementary level scope and sequence, a description of Michigan mandated essential skill and knowledge objectives for primary grade social studies, a statement of scope for grade 2, and a list of the 8 units, strands, and goals for grade 2. The titles of the units described are Me, Home, and School; Decision Making; Classroom and School Rules and Their Enforcement; People and Places, Past and Present; Places That Surround Me; Money, Goods and Services; Belonging to a Group; and Family, School, and Community Problems. Each of these units is outlined in greater detail in part 2 and suggestions are provided for the teaching of each.
