Weekly Reader Connections

Teacher Guide: Unit 1

The Weekly Reader Connections feature on Kids' Place Houghton Mifflin Math provides children with additional practice with the skills taught in the Curriculum Connection feature in their student books.

The “Earth Day” activity asks the child to answer questions based on information in a pictograph. The theme of the activity is Earth Day.

You might share more information on Earth Day with children, such as:

  • Earth Day was the idea of Senator Gaylord Nelson, who was concerned for the environment, and wanted to attract attention to the issue.
  • Earth Day celebrations include concerts, rallies, and fun activities.
