Product Description
The beauty of quality “picture book” literature is not only in the fantastic artwork but also in the interplay of pictures and words to create meaning from shared experiences.

As emerging readers, our primary-aged GATE students are becoming adept at solving inferential “puzzles” which bring the world of literature fully to life. In this lesson, we help our young thinkers dig deeper by making visual-language connections. They’ll answer critical thinking questions with inferences through the details of both the language and art in Blackout as well as from their own understanding of social interactions.

In addition, students will explore literary devices such as onomatopoiea, methaphors, main idea, and theme—all from the Common Core Standards. Finally, students will use perspective and inference in visual art to create their own silhouette to place into a hallway display of the “roof top party” from the book.

In this lesson, you get critical thinking questions to guide your students as well as instructions, printable templates, and samples you’ll use to create a classroom or hallway silhouette.
