Understanding (An Interdisciplinary Approach)

Little books that are a wealth of information are great for building your home library. I had the chance to read the Russian book so my examples are specific to Russia, but the other books have the same format. Learn about people (Tolstoy, Peter the Great, Stalin, etc,) ideas (Sputnik, communism, etc,) places (Siberia, Red Square, Kremlin, etc,) and events (Chernobyl, Crimean War, 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, etc) in one compact book with loads of activity ideas. A few pages of teacher guidance at the beginning help you maximize the content for your students. Text is brief, about a page per topic, and is followed by activity ideas for art, language arts, math, science, and social studies. Kids are encouraged to explore on their own and include their findings in a creation of their own. These would make a great addition to a unit study of governments, Asia, world geography and cultures. Activities are open ended, so there is no answer key needed. Pb, 156pp. ~Sara
