Moving the Earth: Teaching Earth Science Through Movement by Helen Landalf guides the classroom teacher step-by-step in presenting innovative, movement-based lessons that teach such earth science topics as the rock cycle, warm and cold fronts, plate tectonics, erosion, volcanoes, and more. Each lesson includes information about the science topic, detailed instructions for directing students, musical suggestions and tips for presenting the lesson in a limited amount of space. Each lesson is followed by suggested variations and extended activities involving other art forms. Introductory chapters provide a theoretical basis for teaching basic curriculum through movement, define Movement Concepts and give valuable hints for managing movement activities in the classroom. Written by a movement specialist with extensive experience in the public schools, this book is both an inspirational guide and a practical handbook for teachers.
