Activities for the Classroom and Beyond
The Association, 1998 - Education - 61 pages
Since 1975, the Association for Childhood Education International has published a column called "Classroom Idea-Sparkers" in each issue of Childhood Education journal. The column provides practical help for classroom teachers, preschool through middle school, offering educators ideas and activities to help extend learning and make it more relevant to students' everyday lives. This collection comprises those activities from "Classroom Idea-Sparkers" columns published since 1994. The activities have been organized by six categories: language arts and history, art and music, science and math, environment, back to school, and parents. The activities, which can be adapted for younger or older children, range from those intended to encourage reading and to involve students in art, music, science and math, to those that promote environmental and multicultural appreciation.
