Instructional Ideas

  • Split the class into six groups with two groups reading each book; rotate the books through the groups after they have finished the projects
  • Create an interdisciplinary project between art, language arts, and a social studies unit on building character
  • Use the math and science ideas to incorporate literacy skills throughout the entire curriculum
Classroom Considerations

  • Designed as a three-activity unit, but lessons would work as independent project as well
Pros

  • Encourages creativity and self-expression
  • Focuses on the central idea of each book
  • Includes necessary worksheets and instructional tips
Cons

  • None
