AUTHOR : Greg Tabios Pawilen,Manabu Sumida
INFORMATION : page. 139~162 / 2007 Vol.1 No.1
This study discusses the process of developing an indigenous science
curriculum for kindergarten in the Philippines. It is inspired by a vision to uti -
lize the rich experience and indigenous knowledge of the people to enhance
and enrich the science curriculum for the kindergarten level. This study aims
to make the kindergarten science curriculum more relevant and responsive to
the daily-life culture of the learners and to make culture a part of science. In
this paper, important data from the socio-cultural systems of selected commu -
nities are analyzed and discussed in order to determine the context in which
the curriculum is situated. Likewise, the responses of the learners, perceptions
of teachers and community folks, and the government documents on develop -
ing indigenous curriculum were analyzed and presented to develop an indige -
nous science curriculum for kindergarten.
