Easter and Holiday


Key Words: Curriculum Materials, social studies, k-12

Topic: Easter and Holiday

What did I find?

After the teacher and I discussed about the topic, we agreed that I explored Easter and Holiday. After I researched the web, there are so many sites. It was tough for me to narrow down. So I decided to make it simple for the children to learn and enjoy. All the information will help the teacher to merge the idea of holiday into the curriculum.

Using it in the classroom:

The materials and games will give the students the positive reinforcement. They also give the students much enriched experience to learn the different cultures. The teacher should encourage them to explore on web when the teacher educates them. It will be a good idea that the teacher should set up one project per month. In that way, the students will have many opportunities to explore and give the feedback to the classroom.

Insights:

I think it give me so many good educational material. Now I came to the conclusion that every year I can teach many different ways instead of the same old materials. The web has so many updated informations and many different sites.

Useful software:

The Encarta 97 Encyclopedia and the Compton’s Interactive Encyclopedia provide the on-line service. You can pick any topic you want to explore and they will go straight to on-line and give you the information.
