This classroom guide for my picture book, 1 Zany Zoo, is designed for students in preschool through second grade. It offers activities to help teachers integrate 1 Zany Zoo into English language arts (ELA), mathematics, science, and social studies curricula. Art and drama are used as a teaching tool throughout the guide. All activities were created in conjunction with relevant Illinois content standards in ELA, math, science, social studies, art, and drama.
1 Zany Zoo was the Winner of the Cheerios New Author Contest, received the Mom's Choice Award (Gold) and has been nominated for the 2012-2013 South Carolina Book Award.
