Based on a true story, "Snow Treasure" is a tale of heroism set in Norway during World War II. This amazing book, continuously in print since 1942, tells how brave schoolchildren outwitted the invading Nazis. To keep their country's gold out of Nazi hands, the children sledded thirteen tons of gold bricks down the mountain to a waiting ship. The appearance of innocent winter fun fooled the Nazis, and the gold was taken safely to America. Beautiful illustrations perfectly capture the nostalgic tone and bring this thrilling adventure to life in an attractively priced gift edition."
Differentiating Instruction With Menus offers teachers everything they need to create a student-centered learning environment based on choice. Addressing the four main subject areas (language arts, math, science, and social studies) and the major concepts taught within these areas, these books provide a number of different types of menus that elementary-aged students can use to select exciting products that they will develop so teachers can assess what has been learned—instead of using a traditional worksheet format. Each book contains attractive reproducible menus, each based on the levels of Bloom's revised taxonomy, for students to use to guide them in making decisions as to which products they will develop after studying a major concept or unit. Using creative and challenging choices found in Tic-Tac-Toe Menus, List Menus, 2-5-8 Menus, Baseball Menus, and Game Show Menus, students will look forward to sharing their newfound knowledge throughout the year. Also included are specific guidelines for products, rubrics for assessing student products, and teacher introduction pages for each menu. This book includes menus that teach students about language arts genres, mechanics, and novels.
