Color and label a map of the Pacific Islands. Learn the difference between Polynesians and Melanesians and make a fishing mobile. Eat a whole Micronesian feast just like they have in the islands. Create electric circuits and learn to draw circuit diagrams. Play a real stick dance game from Polynesia (beware, it takes both rhythm and practice, but it’s so worth it!) All this and much more is in Layers of Learning Unit 2-17.
In each unit you’ll find a recommended library list, important background information about each topic, lots of activities to choose from for kids of all ages, and sidebars with a bunch more ideas including Additional Layers, Fabulous Facts, On The Web, Writer’s Workshop, Famous Folks, and Teaching Tips. Printable maps and worksheets are included at the end of each unit and may be printed as often as needed for your family or class.
