Review quote

"These American Memory Collections books are subtitled Primary Resource Guide and Reproducible Activities across the Curriculum. These activity books allow the student and teacher to use the vast resources of the Library of Congress Web site as a source for unit development and other instructional techniques. The books are arranged in alphabetical order by topics such as immigration, famous Americans, maps, slavery, animation, child labor and advertising. Each section begins with a teacher page that lists URLs and activities, followed by reproducible activity pages. Rather than being strictly question and answer research questions, many diverse types of activities are included using a great deal of critical thinking and analysis, as well as critical listening and visual observation. Other suggested projects include use of encyclopedias, making posters, writing paragraphs, cinquains, biopoems, and displays. The books are truly cross curricular because the activities include ideas for math and geometry, science, language arts, music, art and social studies. The material should be very appealing to children since many of the topics are fascinating for any age. This will be a welcome addition to any school's professional library. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connectionshow more
