This is a complete lesson plan and activity pack that goes along with the Cat In The Hat book "Inside My Outside" by Tish Rabe. There are two lesson plans that come in this pack. One for Second Grade and one for Third Grade. The pack includes the lesson plan, a KWL chart, printable skeleton template for building skeletons from q-tips, and a printable with the heart, lungs, brain, and a skeleton that can be blown up on a poster machine to make an anchor chart like the one shown in the pictures.
