"Mary Lombardo has compiled lesson plans and handouts for 40 projects that are appropriate for grades four through six. There are four projects per month for September through June. Each project is based on an event or person associated with that particular month, such as Labor Day in September, Fire Prevention in October, and Earth Day in April. All assignments are designed to be completed independently by students after a brief overview by the teacher. Handouts and worksheets are included, as well as background information for the teacher. Content areas and skills are listed at the beginning of each project and scoring rubrics are included. The author includes suggestions for implementation and an index of skills is located in the back of the book. Lombardo is a retired teacher who has created a very useful and practical resource for classroom teachers. Media specialists may find this a handy resource for collaborative planning. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connection
