This popular potpourri of over 600 classroom-tested activities actively engages children's imaginations and provides many months of learning fun. Organized into 48 popular themes, from Dinosaurs to Circus to Outer Space, these favorite activities are the result of a nationwide competition. Join the ranks of teachers who are already using and loving this valuable resource.
"The extensive GIANT Encyclopedia of Theme Activities is just what it claims to be; a big, basic, age-coded collection of activities built around themes, to be used in preschools. A resource book that nonteachers might presumably consult as well."
"What a fantastic idea! We've added this super compendium to our staff resource room-it's a must!"
