All Types of Homes

After hearing about Animal Architects this week, today we read about homes of all kinds. We started with If I Built a House by Chris Van Dusen, about a boy who makes up plans for a fantastic house with a high-tech kitchen and other rooms full of fun. In Ned's New House by Kevin Tseng, Ned the worm leaves his apple home and tries living in other fruits and vegetables. Where to Little Wombat? by Charles Fuge, was about a small animal investigating the homes of his animal friends. And finally, In The Tall, Tall Grass by Denise Fleming showed what sorts of creatures live in grassy areas.

We made some tall, tall grass by folding green paper to make a flap, then cutting into it down to the fold line. Then we made insects and other small critters to live in our "grass".

Caterpillars, bugs and beetles, snakes, bunnies...all sorts of critters, living the the tall, tall grass!
