Teach your students about citizenship with the popular Mo Willem's characters of Elephant and Piggie! This packet is aligned to the VA Social Studies standard 1.1i, 2.1i, and 3.1i, but could be a useful tool outside of VA as well. The lessons focus on these key ideas:
• collaborate to achieve shared goals
• compromise to reach an agreement
• participate in classroom activities to demonstrate respect for
For each of the three read-alouds, there are follow-up activities to help students connect the story to citizenship and reflect on their own experiences with that situation. Two versions of each activity allow for differentiation; students can write their answers or draw a picture, depending on grade and ability.
