Classroom Museums: Touchable Tables for Kids Grades 3-6.
Marx, Pamela
This book provides ideas for table exhibits for grades 3-6 in nine different subject areas. These areas are: marine life; nature in the backyard; the history and uses of flags; impressionist painters and art; winter festivals around the world; fibers and fabrics; Native Americans in touch with the land; sugar and chocolate; and keeping the earth, air and water healthy. The book provides teachers a method of offering hands-on learning opportunities based on the trend in traditional museums to create special touching rooms. The idea is to create experiential opportunities that can serve as a springboard for creative thinking by students to enhance self-esteem, stimulate interest in science, and promote cross-cultural understanding. Teacher how-to checklists, discussion guidelines, samples of student activities, student handouts, a resource bibliography, text for table displays, and sketches for a sample table are provided.
