Basics. [A Compilation of Learning Activities Pages from Seven Issues of Instructor Magazine, September 1982 through March 1983 and May 1983.]
Instructor, v92 n2-7,9 Sept 1982-Mar, May 1983
This collection of 18 learning activities pages focuses on the subject areas of science, language arts, mathematics, and social studies. The science activities pages concern the study of earthquakes, sound, environmental changes, snails and slugs, and friction. Many of the activities are in the form of experiments for the students to perform. Language arts activities cover folktales (specifically "The Blue Jackal" by Marcia Brown), the study of words, writing with an outer-space theme, reading comprehension, and the use of comics as motivators. The three mathematics pages contain activities on metrics, division, and the use of mathematics in the outdoors. Map study skills and a study of Alexander the Great are the two social studies topics provided. Two pages of multidisciplinary activities cover teaching the concept of time and teaching about transportation and travel. The final page in this compilation contains music activities designed to give students a break when they are restless. (EM)
