Time for Horatio - Kit
Price: $ 89.50
Travel to London, where a tiny kitten tries to change things for the better.
Horatio can’t understand why everyone is so mean to him — dogs chase him, birds squawk at him, wasps sting him, and people pull his tail. Then he travels with his friend Oliver to the Greenwich Royal Observatory and learns that the world is running on "mean time."
Not one to take such news lying down, Horatio returns to London with a mission — to stop MEAN time and to start the world running on KIND time. Horatio helps children imagine a world in which peace and cooperation replace violence and hatred.
Your students will create a collage envisioning a kinder world, experiment with a pendulum like the one in Big Ben’s tower, and practice map skills with Horatio’s Map of London. The Time for Horatio teaching guide includes dozens of activities to enrich your classroom. Time for Horatio will help you
• Promote awareness of the sources of harmony and conflict in our homes, schools, communities
• Investigate one of humanity’s great cooperative achievements — a uniform system for telling time
