I have done this unit with all levels of primary Special Education children and English Language Learners. The art activity always comes out looking colorful and wonderful! Then we add writing to go alongside and voila- a great end-of-summer bulletin board! Even though I keep hearing that the Common Core Standards have lots of non-fiction skills, I was happy to see that this oldie-but-goodie aligns quite nicely with some important reading, writing, and language skills.
Isn't Eric Carle a genius?
