Tharp, Barbara; Cutler, Paula; Denk, James; Moreno, Nancy
Reading Links were created as ready-to-use reading and writing activities that directly correlate to the Brainlink adventure stories. The activities are related to reading objectives common to many curricula and cover a range of grades and ability levels. The book features a story called "Legacy of Lost Canyon, a Curious Cave Conundrum." Students read the book then use the information provided in the text to answer questions contained in the activity packets. A second packet of activities is included on brain chemistry. This packet provides background information for the teacher. A reading section is also included along with activities for students related to the brain. Each activity in the brain chemistry packet contains an overview of the investigation, the science and math skills that are the focus of the lesson, the time required for the activity, and the materials needed to perform the activity. A detailed procedure section for each activity is also included. (SAH)
