|Craft ideas: |
Make an Eco-warrior hat and a scroll with a list of ways to protect the Earth.
Create your own planet - what would its name be, what kind of creatures would live there.
*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions.
You can use them, but you dont have to use them.
You can expand upon them, or add your own twist.
Remember, though, that the focus of your time should
not be on the development and execution of a craft;
the focus should be on the read-aloud and the
enjoyment of the book!
