Square One TV, Curriculum Connections Teacher's Guide.
Children's Television Workshop, New York, NY.
This cross curriculum guide links mathematics, language arts, and social studies. The guide is divided into two sections. The first section provides a series of language arts activities and the second social studies activities. Within these two curriculum areas, the activities provided are based on three Square One TV formats: (1) Mathnet, the detective serial that wraps up each episode of the program; (2) the game shows, which integrate mathematics into popular game show formats; and (3) the commercials, which parody television advertisements. Each two-page spread provides two short activities to spark interest and discussion, and a step-by-step activity with a reproducible student page. Follow-up activities are also included. Topics include time, estimation, weights, graphing, and the metric system. The curriculum goals of this program are also included. (KR)
