Instructional Ideas
  • Use the printables with your class reading of each book, or use the activities that pair all three books together
  • Enhance your language arts lesson with the art activities
  • Bring the storyboarding activity to any story you're reading in class
Classroom Considerations
  • Lessons are based on Treasured Stories of Eric Carle, a stage production performed by the Mermaid Theater, which is based in Canada and performs internationally; many lessons and elements of lessons would still work in the absence of the production
  • Lesson 4 requires the book Jazz by Henri Matisse, or images from the book
  • Provides great insights into the production of the art and stories, including an interview from Eric Carle
  • Incorporates math, physical activities, art, and reading skills into several fun lessons
  • None
