wonderful tool for creating fun activities and lessons on essential skills. The layout is amazingly detailed. It includes all maps, drawings you might need for the activity and a list at the front of each activity with any materials you will need. It also provides a step by step suggestion for use. And the activities are cool! Sixteen different lesson sets - it recommends 2 days for each set but some classes will need more. Also includes a few pages at back about grouping students, a list of possible roles and also possible incentives. All activities are based on getting the students involved and, of course, using their hands as well as their minds- and these are thought provoking activities here! No mindless coloring. It is a good sized book, larger than most workbook or activity books you find - 175 pages. Really, Really glad I bought this book - it's worth every penny!

Invaluable classroom resource! My students enjoy the activities and really get into the arts integration. The lessons integrate solid geographic knowledge as well as arts objectives. I've been able to work with the music and art teachers at my school to increase my students' engagement and extend the lessons beyond my classroom. Sarah Giese is apparently an excellent curriculum developer and really knows how to hook students. She must have more books out there. Where can I get more???
