Industrial Arts: Elementary School. A Guide for Teachers.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
This handbook suggests ways elementary school teachers might use industrial arts (IA) activities as an alternative to traditional textbook assignments to teach or to reinforce some skills included in the state list of essential learning skills. An overview provides background information: a definition, content, scope and sequence for IA, and the integration of the essential learning skills. The next three sections contain IA goals and examples of teacher and student activities that help children acquire knowledge and skill in the three major areas of IA: graphic and electronic communication, energy-power-transportation, and materials--processes. The next section contains activity sheets that expand 17 of the 96 activities suggested in the three preceding sections. They are presented as examples to be used for planning and conducting elementary school IA activities. The final section lists resources available to develop and present IA experiences to elementary school students, including software, kits, books, human resources, and resource organizations. (YLB)
