Learning About Movement helps children learn in a hands-on way about the forces that make things move, stop, start, twist, push, pull, squeeze, drop, and lift. Whether they're coloring, cutting and pasting, matching, listening to you read a favorite story about movement, moving themselves, or assembling and observing toys and machines that demonstate movement or friction, children will be involved with the subject on several levels. Activities help children practice skills in: observation, communication, making comparisons, ordering, and categorization. You get student activity sheets, teacher resource pages with ideas for special projects and literature references, and reproducible pages of a movement logbook, a helicopter spinner, picture cards, and more. Movement topics and concepts covered include: using a logbook as a learning tool, people move in different ways, objects cannot move by themselves, different motions move objects, friction occurs whenever objects run against each other, and more. Cute, yet accurate line art illustrations throughout. All 48 pages perforated for easy removal.
