An Instructional Package Integrating Science and Social Studies Instruction at the Fifth Grade Level.
Hulley, Kathy S.
A qualitative study was undertaken to create lesson plans that integrate science and social studies with the hope that teachers will expand them and incorporate them into their curricula. An instructional package of lesson plans that teachers can use to integrate the science and social studies curriculum was devised. The "Mississippi State Department of Education Curriculum Guidelines and Objectives for Social Studies" (1995) contains 15 competencies at the fifth-grade level. Three standards from the National Science Education Standards (1996) were chosen: science and technology, science in personal and social perspectives, and the history and nature of science. Each competency for the social studies has three lesson plans that integrate the selected three standards from the National Science Education Standards. A total of 45 lesson plans were written integrating science and social studies. Each lesson plan includes an objective, materials, procedures, and evaluation for teachers. Teachers are encouraged to use the lesson plans as guides to create lessons that correspond to their school's particular curriculum guidelines. Consideration should be given to the learning levels and learning styles of the classrooms. (Contains 45 references.) (BT)
