Picture Books Plus: 100 Extension Activities in Art, Drama, Music, Math, and Science

Front Cover
American Library Association, 2003 - Education - 133 pages
The idea of literature extension--using hands-on projects from math, science, music, drama, and art to expand on literary works--is an increasingly popular teaching method (with national initiatives sprouting up from Vermont Center for the Book and the Minneapolis Children's Museum in partnerships with ALA's Office of Public Programs and ALSC). It's an innovative concept, though, and there are few resources that show children's librarians, teachers, and early childhood educators how to make these activities effective learning experiences, while promoting a love of books in young readers.
