CALDECOTT BOOK EXTENSIONS and ACTIVITIES: Story Sleuths I
STORY SLEUTHS I is a 4 week, critical thinking project based on Caldecott Award winning books. Your students will use text features, illustrations, and context to determine which Caldecott Award winning book is described by the set of clues. By involving your students in this project, you will exercise their deductive reasoning, analysis, evaluation, and problem solving skills. This unit is CCSS aligned. Students also enjoy great literature, learn about artistic media, and participate in collaborative thinking.
Designed to be conducted by an enrichment specialist, librarian, or art teacher for whole school enrichment, it can easily be adapted to single classroom use. Originally intended for students in 1st - 3rd grades, I have found that kindergarten and 4th grade classes enjoy it as well.
The students and teachers at my school are crazy about this project. Yours will be too!
