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!
