ABSTRACT
The article deals with the variety of activities suggested in curriculum guides. These activities are thought of as resource ideas from which the teacher may choose in helping children in learning about the problem at hand. They are to be selected according to their usefulness in contributing to a given learning goal. In good schools, activities such as reading, observation and writing continue to fill the major part of the pupil's school day. However, it must be recognized that the value of teaching techniques vary. Some methods may be suited to one type of learning experience but not to another. Thus, a relatively minor technique may be just the right choice in a given situation. It should also be recognized that some children may not have the necessary background to use certain techniques successfully. For instance, immature children might flounder helplessly if put too abruptly into a buzz session. They would be bored and restless if subjected to a formal lecture.
