The Do Unto Otters activities will teach students about manners and the golden rule with week-long lesson plans and book activities. These lesson plans will guide you through 3-5 daily interactive reading lessons for a full week of engaging activities your students will love! Each day students will interact with the book for a different purpose and then complete a corresponding printable or digital activity to reflect on the story more deeply.

To teach these lessons you will need:

Do Unto Otters by Laurie Keller

This lesson plan pack includes:

  • Do Unto Otter book read aloud lesson plans
  • Comprehension questions and answer keys
  • Otter character manners activities
  • Otter differentiated graphic organizers and worksheets
  • Writing prompt and writing paper
  • Do Unto Otters craft with instructions
  • Digital graphic organizers and activities pre-loaded to Google Slides and Seesaw

***The digital graphic organizers are the same or similar to the printable options.

***Google slides graphic organizers have text boxes for students to type. Some have movable parts.

***Seesaw has many interactive tools to choose from. Text boxes are not pre-loaded on the graphic organizers because students may want to type or draw, which they can easily do with the provided tools in the program.

These Do Unto Otter lesson plans are perfect for your blended or hybrid learning model! Pre-loaded to Google Slides and Seesaw.
