Elementary School Curriculum. Second and Third Years: Grade II: Primitive Life


by Evelyn Batchelder — 1906

Certain phases of early social culture are studied in the second grade not for the sake of information about a remote and primitive period, but as a means for gaining a better understanding of the life of to-day. The underlying thought in the work of the year is to develop a community attitude which shall allow a natural and unified approach to many of the subjects that are commonly dealt with as separate studies. The following topics are discussed and the problems raised in connection with work in manual training, art, nature study, music, English, and arithmetic. This relationship is most clearly shown in the work in manual training, art, and nature study. In manual training the children work out some of the material problems that primitive peoples faced, in art the decora­tive side becomes prominent, while in nature study the economic value of certain vegetables, flowers, and animals is developed.
