Overview

Based on a solid theories and research regarding child growth, development, and learning, this book presents a multitude of practical ideas, suggestions, and guides for introducing young children to social studies content. Play and activity are integrated throughout the book, which reflects the author's philosophy that play serves not only as the integration of social studies curriculum, but also functions as the basic mode of children's learning. A complete chapter on celebrating diversity offers a solid foundation of curriculum materials, methods, and practices for teaching young children to value themselves and each other. Other coverage includes ideas for using current technologies and resources from the Internet to enhance the learning process. All other areas of the curriculum are involved—integrating social studies with biological and physical sciences, art, literature, mathematics, reading, and writing—to extend and enrich children's education. The book is specifically designed for teachers of pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and primary grade children.
