This lesson is based on the classic book The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton. Each activity is added to an adorable folded house to create a fantastic final project that is lots of fun!
Students will make comparisons, answer 5W questions, sequence, find details, and be introduced to personification.
Very detailed directions with diagrams accompany each activity. Kids will love creating the Little House and adding to the house project each day!
This unit requires minimal prep and includes the following:
• Easy directions to make the foldable houses
• City and Country Comparison Chart
• Sequencing Sheet
• 5W Graphic Organizer
• Transportation Timeline
• Four Season Finding Details Activity
• Personification Writing Activity (two types of handwriting lines)
• House Shaped Venn Diagram
The foldable house can also be used for other units of study such as types of homes, getting to know you activities for the beginning of the year, and haunted house writing at Halloween.
