Explorations, a book in the Multiage Differentiated Curriculum Kit for Grades 4–6, gives students the opportunity to explore our world. The books in Prufrock’s new Differentiated Curriculum Kits employ a differentiated, integrated curriculum based on broad themes. This all-in-one curriculum helps teachers save planning time, ensure compliance with national standards, and most importantly, pique their students’ natural excitement and interest in discovery.
By participating in the wide variety of activities in the Multiage Differentiated Curriculum Kit for Grades 4–6, students will explore the world around them and gain a lifelong desire to learn. From the mysterious depths of the ocean, to the craters of Mars, students will be challenged to go a step beyond the explorers who came before them. In one activity, students will act as explorers and examine the culture they live in. Students then will take characteristics from their discoveries and try to adapt them to another civilization. Social inequality and the effects of nutritional habits on the heart will be examined. Students also will explore winter survival tactics and retrace the steps of some famous explorers, such as Marco Polo.
Explorations, along with the other books in the Multiage Differentiated Curriculum Kit for Grades 4–6 (Balances, Choices, Questions, and Viewpoints), makes teaching advanced learners easier!
This curriculum unit makes use of the following great children's literature books:
- Marco Polo: A Journey Through China by Fiona MacDonald;
- Brian's Winter by Gary Paulsen;
- How Do You Lift a Lion? by Robert E. Walls (optional) and;
- The Magic of M.C. Escher by M.C. Escher et al. (optional).
