The materials consist of four lessons each at grade levels 3-5, designed for use by both Russian bilingual and English-monolingual teachers in general and special education. The lessons are cross-referenced to learning and performance standards established for New York City (New York) public schools. Each unit (group of grade-level lessons) focuses on a major cultural theme and uses skills in mathematics, science, social studies, and language arts. Lessons include a learning objective, key vocabulary, list of materials, motivational techniques, presentation procedure, class activities, extension activities, adaptations for special education students, and illustration(s). The third grade unit features "blini," a Russian food, and lessons address measuring skills, the effect of yeast, chemical changes, and related stories, customs, and traditions. The fourth grade unit focuses on the Russian community, with lessons on reasons for immigration, immigration experiences, creation of a collage, and the Russian community in New York City. The fifth grade unit, on Russian flax, contains lessons on use of resources and geography, parts and functions of the flower, and life cycles. The full text of each lesson and exercises is presented in both English and Russian. (MSE)
