Overview

Teachers of social studies in grades 4-8 will appreciate this abundant source of original and intriguing ideas, activities, and children's books they can use to enrich their history lessons. Ranging from prehistoric times and ancient cradles of civilization in the Eastern Hemisphere through Europe and the Western Hemisphere, the book focuses on how past cultures and heritages melded to form present American society. KEY TOPICS: Rich in variety, the strategies and activities are well developed. Although they are described as an integral part of a specific chapter covering a given time period, many can be adapted to almost any period of study. Some of the activities are most useful for the whole class; others are more appropriate for small groups, partnerships, or individualized inquiry. The book also includes many reproducible "history masters" for classroom use.

In-service teachers in grades 4-8. A Longwood Professional Book.
