Shaping a Nation: The Role of the Livestock & Meat Industry in History & Economics [Teacher's Guides and Activity Masters].
National Live Stock and Meat Board, Chicago, IL. Education Dept.
Recommended for use with students in grades 4-6, this audiovisual kit focuses on the role of the livestock industry in history and economics. A brief historical survey of the origin of cattle and hogs in the United States relates the livestock industry to the growth and expansion of the country. A look at two modern livestock operations introduces students to three key economic concepts: factors of production, the market system, and specialization. Although the kit is intended to be used with filmstrips and cassettes, complete narration and black-and-white reproductions of all frames in the filmstrips are included in the first of four teachers' guides. Also included are a bibliography, glossary, and film pre- and postviewing activities. Each of the other guides treats one of the three concepts (production, marketing, and specialization) in depth and includes student objectives, activity ideas, extension activities, corresponding activity masters, and answer keys.
