  • Design an Eric Carle bulletin board to go along with the first activity that showcases the three stories 
  • Assign the worksheet for one center rotation during English language arts period

  • Includes a page detailing the history of Eric Carle as well as additional activities and discussion questions 
  • Each lesson includes extension activities
