Changes--Now and Long Ago. Grade 1 Model Lesson for Standard 4. California History-Social Science Course Models.
Adams, Julie Wong; Rickett, Elizabeth; Porter, Priscilla
Chronological thinking is one of the historical and social sciences analysis skills of the California History-Social Science Standards. The study of history is the study of change. This unit addresses different types of change from "now" to "then." From the community, including types of transportation, to the school, children will learn: (1) change is continuous and always present; and (2) change affects their lives in different ways. Students explain how the present is connected to the past, identifying both similarities and differences between the two, and how some things change over time and some things stay the same. They compare and contrast everyday life in different times and places around the world. Suggested time for unit completion is 7 weeks. The lesson plan discusses the significance of the topic; gives the historical background; lists focus questions; features literacy links; covers materials needed; and provides information and student activities, dividing the topic into: "Beginning the Topic,""Developing the Topic," and "Culminating the Topic." It suggests assessment activities and offers extended/correlated activities. An extensive resource list is furnished for the sample topic. Appended are sample worksheets. (BT)
