Nutrition education is presented in a way that exposes students to the many cultures and eating habits in the world. "Everybody Cooks Rice" is a creative way to use literature to teach about nutrition and multi-cultural topics. The book tells about the use of rice in Vietnam, Puerto Rico, India and other countries. In addition this teacher has requested leveled reading materials since she is a new teacher and does nogt have sufficient reading materials in her classroom to meet all reading abilities.
Fourth grade students will experience "Living History" at a local campground, recreating and enacting daily life activities of California settlers in the mid-1800's. The intent is to enhance study of California history by integrating visual and perfoming arts, geology, gold panning and messurment.
Two multi-media instructional units: The Great Solar System Rescue and The Great Ocean Rescue will be purchased and kept in the library to be used as part of the fith-grade science curriculum. Both programs consist of vidoedisk, software, student "expert" books, and a teacher guide.
Enhancement materials to develop a program that conforms to the new science standards that were recently adopted. The materials would make the science curriculum more accessible and comprehensible to every one student.
