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.
Bill Wickland volunteers his time at both Tahoe Lake and Rideout Schools to comliment their science curriculum with an innovative and entertaining science curriculum. Funds requested are for materials only.
The SPECTRA art program is a slide based educational art curriculum that involves all learning styles and engages students in creating successful and meaningful artwork. After viewing slides, discussing the technique, cultural and social significance students are guided through a grade appropriate hands on lesson.
