The Arabs: Activities for the Elementary School Level. The Things that Make for Peace: Empowering Children To Value Themselves and Others.
Shabbas, Audrey; And Others
These activities for teaching elementary school students about the Arab people are designed to reflect the principles of peace education: respect for one's self, others, and for the planet. The activities are hands-on in nature and designed with the "whole child" in mind. The activities integrate movement, fine muscle and large muscle activities, and language. Among the included activities are: what do Arabs name their children; foods from Arab lands; recycled soap; shadow puppets; and fun with Arabic geometric designs. (DB)
