One of a series of activity guides designed to aid teachers in developing the thinking skills of intermediate grade students, this publication offers a variety of learning activities and resource materials. The activities and resources include: a calendar which lists important days and birthdays in March, April, and May; poems; word puzzles and other puzzles; language arts activities; social studies activities; facts about the 50 states; lists of read-aloud books for fourth, fifth, and sixth grades; science activities; mathematics activities; activities to develop an awareness of the petroleum industry; and activities to develop skills in the team sport of softball. Several of the activities are related to the spring months. An index lists the activities in four categories related to thinking skills from Guilford's Structure of the Intellect model: cognition, memory, convergent production, and divergent production. (DC)
