This Hill of Fire Teaching Plan lesson plan also includes:
Some books are perfect for drawing connections between multiple subjects. The book Hill of Fire becomes the hub for three very different, yet related activity ideas. First the class hones their oral language skills by creating an on-the-scene news flash inspired by the volcanic events in the story. Then, they discuss cultural norms as they relate to civic responsibilities stemming from natural disasters. Finally, they create a bulletin board display which describes different types of rock, how they originate, and their common uses.
- The ideas are fun and will actively engage the entire class
- The ideas can be used as a part of an entire cross-curricular unit
