What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
“This book is a collection of integrated activities built around folktales which encourage building a multicultural community in elementary grades. The activities provide opportunities for differentiated instruction and support the state standards across curriculum areas. A useful resource for the beginning and veteran teacher looking to connect the world to their classroom.”—Lisa Seiberling, elementary science coordinator, Columbus Public Schools

 “An outstanding resource which will motivate both teachers and students to learn more about the various cultures around the world. The activities are so designed to help meet state standards and are especially helpful for teachers in their quest for new ideas to present to their students.”—Florence C. Galloway, academic coordinator and assistant professor, Applied Behavioral Sciences and College of Arts and Sciences, National-Louis University, Florida Regional Center, Tampa

 “Global Discovery Activities provides teachers with a wonderful array of classroom activities to help children develop a rich understanding of their world. Aligning activities with state standards and including activities for various learning styles and multiple intelligences make this a book that teachers will turn to frequently in planning instruction.”—Rhoda McShane Becher, associate professor, School of Teaching and Learning, College of Education, The Ohio State University
