Busy Hands

Excerpt from Busy Hands: Construction Work for Children One purpose of this book is to make clearer the subjects which may be studied in connection with language or history. Children are delighted to make any article. They enter into construction work with the utmost zeal. In this volume the author has sought to direct this natural interest of the child in such a way that its studies will be more clearly understood. For example: Let a teacher select "The Indians," for a language or history lesson. The children will learn to talk readily about those people, but after a class has constructed a wigwam, the customs of the Indians will be more real. Those children who get ideas slowly from the oral word will probably have their first clear conception of Indian life after constructing a canoe. The book has another purpose. Few children get ideas readily from the printed page. "Busy Hands" may be used to overcome that difficulty. If each child in a class had a copy of the book, and was told to make an article by doing just what the book said, sentence by sentence, the children would soon develop power to grasp the meaning from other printed material. That the children may be helped in the ways set forth is the wish of the author. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
