Butterfly pop-up glyph: students make a pop-up butterfly they hide in their hands—just like in the book. It’s not just a pop-up; it’s a colorful glyph all about their abilities and skills.
Trading cards: what will you trade for an elephant, a giant piece of cake, an owl who knows all the answers? Students negotiate and make trades using trading cards and then explain what might be both good and bad about owning their treasures.
