Ages, a book from the Multiage Differentiated Curriculum Kit for Grades 6-8, leads students on an exciting journey through history. The books in Prufrock's new Multiage Differentiated Curriculum Kits employ a differentiated, integrated curriculum based on broad themes. This all-in-one curriculum helps teachers save planning time, ensure compliance with national standards, and most importantly, pique their students' natural excitement and interest in discovery. By participating in the wide variety of activities in the Multiage Differentiated Curriculum Kit for Grades 6-8, students will discover the history before them and gain a lifelong desire to learn. Students will discover architecture and the evolution of the calendar in the book's conceptual look at the word ages. From Sputnik and the dawn of the space age, to the computer revolution that is forever changing our lives, students will explore the issues that shape our world. How has advertising evolved over the past 100 years and illustrated the different ages? What made the Dark Ages dark? The Golden Ages golden? These questions and many others will be explored as students deal with their own coming of age.
