For those of you who are reading Peace at Last and want to integrate some science lesson here is a fun tutorial on making shadow puppets with your hands.
If you are teaching young children you might prefer the following download.The National Wildlife Federation has some cute animal templates: backyard animals and ocean animals as a free download! Click here. I just love the idea of using a paper puncher to make eyes and other features. I am totally doing this one!!
Peace at Last is a fantastic story for integrating science and literacy. The objectives of the Science Curriculum for Junior & Senior Infants that can be met through exploring the themes in the book are as follows:
Strand: Energy & Forces Stand Unit: Light
- discuss differences between day and night, light and shade
- explore how shadows are formed
