review:
This traveling kit contains activities and resources for discovery-based classroom activities focusing on Lake Superior. Resources include books, magazines, video and/or audiotapes, posters, maps, and all materials or equipment (including lesson plans) necessary for each activity. This traveling kit introduces students to Lake Superior through lesson plans as well as suggested activities depicting aspects of the lake that relate to the letters A-L. Lesson plans are included for some letters, but teachers are also encouraged to develop activities for the remaining letters. This kit allows for student-directed learning, as teachers can also let students choose research topics related to a specific letter. Lesson plans are included for five letters: A is for Agates; B is for Bridges; F is for Fish and Food Chains; G is for Geology, and L is for Lighthouse. Also included is an extensive list of resources, organized alphabetically by topic and subject area. This list should be useful for teachers and students.
