Hundreds of activities to help children better understand concepts in 6 major content areas
Teachers often look for new ways to teach concepts. Active Learning Across the Curriculum by Rae Pica is a wonderful addition to any elementary teacher’s professional library. “Movement is a young child’s preferred mode of learning,” is exactly right and an integral part of an early childhood classroom. This book has multiple ways of using developmentally appropriate practices to ensure children understand basic concepts. It also goes a step further as it addresses such issues as “personal space.” As an early childhood advocate, I would highly recommend this book for novice teachers and masters alike as they search for fresh ideas.

Rae Pica has it just right! In Active Learning Across the Curriculum, fun and fresh activities jump off the page, and we dive into irresistible best practices in six content areas. Strikingly, this gifted author makes such great sense of extensive research in the field that we are at once absorbed into a way of thinking—rich in content, rationale and robust pedagogy. Thank you sincerely, Rae Pica, for this opportunity to join you in delivering on promises and practices, which forever enhance the lives of young children. Your astute book—crisp, concise and consistent—is, indeed, easy to pick up and hard to put down. Kudos! With great appreciation!
