Earth Day with Where's the Elephant?

I love this book! I first found this book on a BLOG post at Rock Your Homeschool - Amy's post lists some great books for Arbor Day.

I used Where’s the Elephant? for Earth Day but it could be used for so many lessons. The book does not actually have any words but still manages to teach a wonderful lesson about deforestation. 

Where’sthe Elephant? really gets students thinking!

I created a FREEBIE and have it posted in my TPT store - so help your self! :) 

Below I will show off our craft but the FREEBIE has many more activities!

Head over to Amazon to order the book and over to Amy’s BLOG to find some more great books!

Me on the Map!

For some reason my students have a difficult time and often confuse state-country-continent. 
This little flip book helped out a ton, along with the book Me on the Map!

Read on to my FREEBIE!

If you are making these for a classroom of students I would just make patterns and let them trace each circle onto paper, rather than making copies for each child. 

First, we started off reading the book, Me on the Map

I also use this vocabulary to help my students!

Now, onto the flip book!
Here is an example of each page. 

Have fun and share a picture of how your flip books turned out in the comments!

Lion and the Mouse

We love this story! I like to read several different versions of The Lion and the Mouse, so we can compare each version.
 I found all of my books at Amazon.

After we read and compared each version we discussed morals and how many lessons the story taught us.

Next, we did our lion directed drawing. I found a painting that I loved here. I turned it into a directed drawing.

We used Oil Pastels to color this time. Oil pastels are such a fun way to color and add a neat look to kid’s artwork.

After we were done with our drawing. We did a little craft. Here is what we used for our craft.
    1. paper plate
    2. string for the trap
    3. string for the mouse tail
    4. Lion drawing

1. We glued our picture to a paper plate.

2. Cut slits into our paper plate.

3. Laced the yarn around the slits to look like the trap. 

4. Add a cute, little mouse.

Check out these versions!
