Summary

Designed by Project TEACH (Teaching Environmental Awareness to the Children of Harvest), the skill-sequenced curriculum unit was developed to teach 3- to 5-year-old migrant children about the benefits and possible hazards of pesticides. Prepared in both Spanish and English, the field-tested unit can be used as a separate teaching unit or integrated into regular mathematics and reading curriculum. The guide includes a list of symptoms of pesticide poisoning, an overview of Project TEACH, a teacher's guide for using pesticides safely, the readiness unit, parent's booklet, and 15 visuals. The teacher's guide contains four units that cover types of pesticides and their toxicity; federal and state pesticide laws; pesticide packaging, storage, and safety; and pesticide poisoning and treatment. Each unit includes a true-false test. The readiness unit provides 16 lessons planned around pesticide concepts. Lesson activities consist of practice in 50 readiness skills taken from the National Migrant Education Skills Scope in early childhood development, reading, and math. Each lesson includes objectives, skills to be practiced, activities, materials, and procedures. Intended to help parents teach their child about the benefits and dangers of pesticides, the parent's booklet lists 16 concepts that the child will learn about pesticides. (NQA)
