This story was read to a small group of students from Cragin Elementary
School. While reading the book, we noticed the interesting graphics
and illustrations that were done. Once the book was finished, we discussed
the story and how it relates to Arizona weather. They learned that weather
and climate play a big role in the community. I then asked the students
to draw a picture about what they currently collect, and/or what they
would like to collect in the future.
"I want to collect gold". -
"I collect baseball cards now, but I would
like to find a Genie lamp."
"I would like to collect rocks
and stuff I find in the dump or on the ground." - Petra
"I would like to collect gold
so I can buy more things." - Conner
