Get Up and Move with Nonfiction
Polette, Nancy
Teacher Ideas Press
Using an approach based on a Harvard study that found "when the whole body is involved, the number of brain cells brought to the learning activity doubles," the author offers over one hundred kinesthetic activities for classroom use. Activities are organized by content area, include directions for number of players, objective, and procedure, and are followed by nonfiction reading suggestions. Many activities are in game and or dramatic presentation format. Students are given the opportunity to solve real-life problems, create circle stories with nonfiction material, create original excuses using science vocabulary, assume the role of eyewitnesses in historical events, and more. This book is targeted to teachers of grades 4-8 and and is divided into the following four parts: (1) Science; (2) Mathematics; (3) Geography; and (4) U.S. History. An index is also included.
