Most of the classroom activities suggested here were tried out by teachers with their own classes. Although the activities seem most appropriate for elementary grades, they might also be used by older students, especially those in schools not tied to orthodox curriculums. Many of the activities could be linked to subject matter, but others, like baking bread, obviously have objectives which are not cognitive. The activities range from constructing a mobile which illustrates the checks and balance system of the United States government, to making use of favorite words, to solving a mystery, to pretending that the student is a Vietnamese peasant. What many of the activities have in common is the belief in creating as the basis of learning, thinking, and feeling. (JK)
