MiddleWeb - Elizabeth OBrien

"I also somehow knew that the words bag lady meant the book would give me more ideas to allow students to explore, discover and create. The book is divided into different chapters by classroom subject areas. However, ideas suggested in one subject area could be easily used in another subject area. Just add your own creativity and what works for your lessons. . . .I think as a teacher you will be happy with a lot of the activities in this book." - MiddleWeb
