What educators are saying

Great to use with my second graders, who loved that they could have an awesome craft to do while learning about who, what, when, where, why, etc.
This was a great writing and art resource. The children were able to show their comprehension of the story in a fun way. Thanks for sharing this activity with us.


“Oh the Places You’ll Go” is not only perfect for March is Reading Month, Read Across America, or a Celebration of Seuss Week, but the story is also appropriate at the end of the year, when students are advancing into a new grade or graduating!

With that in mind, I decided to combine reading and writing with a bit of geography, with this super-fun “Oh, the Places I’LL Go!” craftivity.

Teacher Comments:

  • "My students loved this exercise."
  • “Great resource.” “Awesome!” “Cute activity.”

  • "This was a great writing and art resource. The children were able to show their comprehension of the story in a fun way."

Children think of a place they’d like to travel to. Money is no object, so the world is literally at their feet.

Older students can do a bit of research to find out about a fascinating place they’d like to travel to. (Thus the geography connection, as well as great research & technology practice!)

The cover of this “flip-the-flap” hat, comes with the question words: Who? What? Why? When? Where & How? written on the stripes, which when flipped over, reveal the student’s answers.

For example, “Where would you like to travel to?”, "When would you like to go?", "Why do you want to go there?", "Who do you want to go with?", "What do you want to see?" and "How do you want to get there?"

The craftivity provides an interesting way to practice & reinforce the “5 Ws + 1 H” question words in a fun way.

Teacher Comment:

  • "My students loved using this resource to get their thoughts together before they wrote their paragraphs."

I’ve included a poster, with the entire questions that you can use to introduce your lesson.

As always, patterns come in both black & white for students, as well as color, so that teachers can quickly & easily make an example to share.

There are also blank patterns, so that older students can write in their own words and titles.

See the PREVIEW for lots of samples.

Completed projects make a terrific bulletin board or hallway display. I’ve included a variety of posters as well as letters for the caption: “Oh, the Places We’ll Go!” to add extra pizzazz.

You can leave the hat “as is” or have students glue their completed craftivity to the suitcase pattern. A luggage tag for a student’s name, adds some 3D pop.


While designing this first “Oh the Places” HAT craft, I decided to divide things up and make a separate packet with a young child reading, as well as another packet featuring older students instead of putting everything into one purchase.

By making 3 separate packets, teachers can choose which craft is most appropriate for their students and grade level. This also keeps the price down.

While the writing prompt CRAFT is different in all 3 of the packets, they do include the SAME posters & letters for the bulletin board caption.
