Literature-Based Activities Integrating Mathematics with Other Content Areas: Grades 3-5 By Robin A. Ward In a three-volume series by grade level, author Robin Ward provides easy-to-implement, literature-based activities that integrate standards-based content from science, social studies, and the arts with standards-based elementary math content. Beginning with the rationale for and research to support interdisciplinary teaching, each book outlines a wealth of lessons that provide you with detailed instructions for implementing the activities and your students with the benefits of integrated instruction. This second book in the series offers literature summaries, NCTM and other national standards, assessment notes, and related websites and books, making it a perfect classroom companion for teaching in the third, fourth, and fifth grades! ""The math-visual arts connections are exciting! As I was reading [Robin's] suggestions for activities, I wanted to collect a group of eight- to ten-year-old students and begin working and learning with them. You have incorporated excitement for students who need to have concrete examples of math as well as attracting kinesthetic learners through hands-on activities. Well done!" -Kris O'Clair, math and science intervention coordinator, Denver Public Schools"" " Robin Ward is a ten-year mathematics educator who has presented locally and nationally on improving mathematics pedagogy.
