World Olympics, Tanenbaum’s innovative, literacy-based, academically integrated after-school curriculum for grades K-6, helps students explore these questions and more using the theme of the Olympics. Students learn about global cultures, sportspersonship, teamwork, and respectful behavior – and key skills in literacy, math, social studies, science and art. The curriculum includes a planning guide for organizing culminating Olympics events that celebrate successes and showcase students’ learning.
Changing Seasons, Changing World, is a literacy-based, academically integrated guidebook of lessons for grades K-6, and a resource for teachers interested in bringing issues of religious diversity into their classrooms.
The lessons and activities explore connections between the changing seasons and the ways they are celebrated around the world. They also explore cultural/religious traditions and their connections to nature conservation and the protection of animals. With easily adapted lesson plans, teachers can empower students with an understanding that there are many different religious practices around the world with commonalities and differences among them.
