Come In Spaceship Earth. Kids as Crew Members. Peace Works Series.
Schmidt, Fran; Friedman, Alice
This program, for grades 4 through 12, introduces students to the concepts that result in cooperative work for the survival and improvement of the quality of life of the human family. In addition to the teacher's guide presented here, the program comes with a music video recorded in seven languages, reproducible pages, a class simulation game, and a poster of Planet Earth. The guide includes the following sections: (1) "To See the World" (an introduction); (2) "Connections"; (3) "Who Speaks for Earth?"; (4) Terra II--A Spaceship Earth Simulation"; and (5) an appendix that lists 17 environmental organizations, 16 resource organizations, 4 young peoples' groups, 3 pen-pal programs, and 5 games and projects. Sections 1-3 are further divided into a total of 16 subsections containing activities and discussion materials, each beginning with brief guidelines for teaching that section. The guide concludes that the interconnection that binds all people and nations must be recognized and developed to ensure the survival of Spaceship Earth. (SLD)
