A great adapted book explaining camping--best used in the fall as the book references fall and using a campfire to warm up however, could be used any time of year.
Once printed, laminated, and velcro-ed, this book can be used for years to come to teach children about camping--an experience some may never experience for themselves. Use the moveable pieces to answer comprehension questions once the book is completed or as a one-to-one match during the book reading--whatever the child needs!
Can be made into a thematic unit by setting your classroom into a campsite, following recipes to make microwave s'mores or trail mix, reading other books about camping, learn about the stars/constellations you might see while camping, etc. Get creative and enjoy seeing your students learn and grow!
