    With this teaching resource by your side, you won't run out of interesting computer activities for a long time. The 34 projects in this book are intended, in my opinion, for the student who already knows a little bit about using the Internet and Microsoft Office, particularly Excel, Word, and PowerPoint. This activity book begins with some technical tips on how to use these applications, but then jumps right into different projects. Much like Computer Activities Through the Year, these activities feature step-by-step instructions. However, this volume lacks the topical organization of the original. Why? Because activities in this book tend to incorporate more than one application, which makes it much more difficult to separate, for example, the word processing activities from the Internet activities. Take the "Great Inventors" project, for instance. In this activity, you research and create a comic strip about an inventor. Not only does this project practice Internet research skills, but you also learn how to insert, resize, and add borders to pictures in a document. Aside from practicing computer skills, these activities are great cross-curricular projects, touching on a variety of different subjects. In "Getting into Grammar," you practice identifying adjectives and adverbs in addition to learning how to underline, italicize, and change font colors on a word document. In "Converting to Metric," you practice using formulas in a spreadsheet, and in "Acrostic Poems," you turn original poetry into a PowerPoint presentation. ~ Anh

    This reproducible book contains worksheets that assist students in researching and writing state reports. The first part of the book focuses on researching the state, with information on internet research, using the library, making note cards, and quotations versus paraphrasing. The next part of the book focuses on writing the state report, with worksheets that students can use to fill in with information about their state. Some of the worksheets include Statehood History, Physical Features, Political Features, Famous People, and Government. Budding artists will enjoy drawing state flags, seals, and symbols on the appropriate pages. Other worksheets include Population Growth and Density (requiring graphing), Visitor's Guide (to list places worth visiting in the state), Bibliography (to list sources used in the report), and a list of additional hands-on project ideas. These are just a few of the versatile worksheets found within this handy resource, and as they are not state specific, they can be easily re-used. 48 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    This book will help you to develop Christian character in your children. 13 units focus on honoring God, respecting others, telling the truth, self-control, kindness, obeying rules, forgiveness, responsibility, patience, loving everyone, apologizing, thankfulness, and sharing. Every unit holds 10-11 pages of stories and activities for that value. A poster for that trait starts each chapter, along with games, songs and a craft. Then there is a Bible lesson , such as the story of Jonah for "saying I'm sorry," and an application lesson - a real life situation story in which fictional children learn the lesson. A few activities are included for each lesson, such as following directions, puzzles, crosswords, and other practical, original exercises. Every unit ends with a "My Contract" page, where kids can decide to sign a contract to try and do better in that area. Although you can use this with just one child, I think it would also work well for a Sunday school class or group of children, as it is reproducible and several of the activities and games utilize "teamwork." ~ Stephanie

    From Eadweard Muybridge (the father of motion photography in the early 1900s) to George Lucas (one of the greatest filmmakers from the 1970s to the present), this reproducible resource contains biographical information and hands-on projects that teach students about 20 American artists of the 20th Century. Each decade begins with a one-page "At a Glance" narrative providing an overview of the significant historical, cultural, and artistic forces of the decade. Next is a one-page biography of an artist, with a short timeline of the decade at the bottom of the page. Each biography is followed by a hands-on project to complete, plus a page containing a quotation (in large type) by that artist. Some examples of the art projects include: building 3-D Pueblo architecture (Frank Lloyd Wright), documentary photography (Dorothea Lange), poster art (Norman Rockwell), and drawing a cartoon (Walt Disney). The pages describing the art projects are written to the teacher, with lists of materials, vocabulary to introduce to the students, instructions for implementing the projects (sometimes over several sessions), and ideas for extension activities. The back of the book contains a glossary of art terms, a list of art resources (books, videos) about the artists, and time line cards (simple illustrated portraits of each artist). 112 pgs. ~ Lisa

    Art & Artists Through the Centuries is perfect for those seeking to impart art appreciation to both younger and older kids. The book is divided into lessons featuring a particular artist. A short biography of the artist and a vocabulary list are included for each lesson. Techniques and styles unique to the artist are discussed; a project that allows students to utilize these techniques is then presented. Every project includes a list of materials along with directions for completing the project. Guidelines and test questions (with answers) are also provided. For the ambitious instructor, blank lesson forms are also included so that you can discuss artists not covered in the book. ~ Enh

    This book focuses on the following five basic steps for effective essay writing: understanding essays, preparing to write, making a first draft, revision, and a final check. Instruction and guidance is provided for each of the basic steps, and a number of comprehension and writing exercises allowing for students to practice their essay writing skills are also included. For example, step 1 focuses on understanding essays and addresses questions such as what exactly is an essay, why do we write essays, how an essay is different from other written texts, and what is the basic essay structure? Examples of activities related to understanding essays include distinguishing between fact and opinion and categorizing essays by intent (ex: argue a point of view, discuss both sides of an issue, or explain something). The content and tasks are written directly to the student, which promotes self-study. Reproducible, answers included. - Enh

    Although most people can hear, listening is a skill that takes time and motivation to develop. Much information is given to us verbally, and it is essential to attend to these signals and pick out the vital messages. This book helps students build their listening skills as they are taught to recognize important information in a passage that is read to them, take effective notes on this information, and then write answers and essay questions to show their understanding. Preliminary listening activities such as "solve the mystery" and "which word doesn't belong" are provided to ready students for the content of the book. A list of key words signaling important information is included as well. Units are based on four different types of written selections: folktales, magazine articles, newspaper articles, and literature, to teach students how to understand information presented in a variety of different ways. Each unit offers an outline student guide and graphic organizer to aid the student in taking notes. For every unit, twelve different passages are given for the teacher to read aloud, each with a reproducible answer page for the students to complete. The first passage of each unit serves as a "role model," as teachers work through the answer page with the students. Students quickly learn to perform more and more of the process themselves throughout the next few passages, and the last 7 passages of each chapter are performed completely independently. Teachers read the story and allow the student to take notes, and then hand out the short essay questions to be completed from their notes only. Answers at the back of each unit provide aid in grading the assignments. Note - the passages in the "Literature" unit are from popular novels such as Julie of the Wolves and Sounder, and are not included. ~ Steph
