This reader response activity ties in nicely with Science and Geography- keeping cool.
I explained to my class that the duck and geese have forbidden the pig from every jumping into their pond again! As it is summer, the pig is likely to get hot again. The ducks are looking for useful suggestions to offer the pig when he needs to cool off.
My class came up with some fantastic ideas during our brainstorming session: ice-cream, a cold shower, a sun hat, water guns and even his own paddling pool! I just love to see children becoming so absorbed and so engaged with text and creatively responding to it.
