Each learning activity consists of objectives, methods, background information, needed materials, procedures, information about combining with related academic subjects, and use of specific student skills. Suggestions for student evaluation and extended learning activities are included. A glossary and additional resources are also included. This guide contains many illustrations and maps. (LP)
