Craig Loewen,
Faculty of Education,
Lethbridge University

   These activities came from a workshop that Craig held with some teachers in Medicine Hat, Alberta. The teachers were interested in manipulatives for the upper elementary grades (Gr. 4-6). Craig put together these activities, one for each of the three grades and for each of 7 different manipulatives. The activities are available here in both HTML and Portable Document Format (pdf). Pdf is especially useful for documents that are to be printed. To read pdf files you need Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat reader, get a copy here about pdf.
