Games & Activities for Middle School Youth Groups
From one of the world's foremost science museums and the creators of the national bestseller and Parent's Choice Book Award-winner The Explorabook (over one million copies sold) comes Math and Science Across Cultures: Activities and Investigations from the Exploratorium. Too often, the study of science, math, and technology is limited to the major successes of the Western world. Yet people all over the world have observed and explored nature and developed technologies to help them in their everyday lives. Designed to help teachers, parents, and youth-group leaders use hands-on activities to explore the math and science of different cultural traditions, and to make these subjects more relevent and approachable for children of all backgrounds, Math and Science Across Cultures uses innovative techniques that support work in the most challenging of standards-based classrooms.
