Language arts -- Correlation with content subjects;
The process of instructional development was engaged in to extend the literature base of the unit on insects, specifically ants, bees, and crickets, for grade two. Quality literature works were gathered to enrich the unit. The result of this project was the development of a rich environment in which the processes of the language arts and science areas were integrated to foster students' in-depth study of the concepts of the unit and thinking-language abilities. The unit was presented through teacher-directed activities and learning centers--sustaining and specific to the unit. Sustaining centers maintained a secure, predictable learning environment as well as enhanced the unit of study.
