Hands-On Thinking Activities-Centers Through the Year, Grades 1-3, gives you everything you need to create a wide variety of activity centers that build critical thinking skills. Activities include math concepts, science concepts, and language topics.
Each center contains:
- a teacher page
- a materials list
- a description of the task, the skills practiced, and the steps to follow
- record forms and reproducible forms that students complete at the center
- full-color cutouts, ready-to-use center signs, and display items
Centers can be set up as a series of individual activities done over a period of time during an appropriate season or, as a one-day "carnival," where students spend two to four hours touring several season-related centers.
