The Giraffe that Walked to Paris Storybook Activities
Poppins Book Nook virtual book club for 2014-2015 is officially underway! This month's theme was Where in the World? There were so many great books to choose from, but in the end I felt inspired by the book, The Giraffe that Walked to Paris by Nancy Milton.
It is actually part of the Five in a Row curriculum that we used for my son's 4K and 5K years, but we never got around to reading it because it was out of print and our library did not carry it. However, just last year it was brought back to the printing press and I purchased it with the intent to row it last summer. Well, that didn't happen and sadly it was sitting on my designated Five In a Row bookshelf in the school room closet.
To bring our story to life I challenged my son to make some landmarks from the book using Legos. He was up for the challenge and I for once enjoyed digging through his Lego bin for specific pieces, too. To represent Egypt, we built a pyramid. We started with a square base and then built on top of that to form the pyramid shape. While my son was building it, I read through a couple of books I picked up from the library about pyramids.
