This is the second book in a three-volume resource set for primary- grade educators, providing instructional units on cultural universals<-->basic human needs and social experiences found in all societies, past and present, including food, clothing, shelter, family living, communication, transportation, government, money, and childhood. The units are structured around powerful ideas and designed to allow in-depth study, with attention to application of the material outside of the classroom. This text can be used as an alternative or a supplement to traditional, primary-grade social studies textbooks. Both authors are in the teacher education department at Michigan State U.
