I was trying to come up with a great activity to do with “Make Way for Ducklings,” it’s the ‘Official State Picture book’ of Massachusetts, thanks to a third grade class lobbying for its inclusion. I was really struggling with what to do that was age appropriate for little kids and older kids. Then I found this idea.
I don’t have a lot of pictures of this activity because they did it while I was reading the story. Okay, I have one, taken afterwards. I went to this page and printed off one of their map pages. As I named the places in the story they found it and drew how they got there.
This was great because it was a struggle for my kids to figure it out, and a great review for the older kids. My kids really loved it!
