***3rd GRADE CURRICULUM***
- Little House in the Classroom - This can be used with grades 3-5. To be used with seven of the Little House on the Prairie books, this reproducible book organizes the vivid recollections of Laura Ingalls Wilder's books into seven learning units. Each unit incorporates activities that utilize reading and writing skills, poetry, geography, math, social studies, art, cooking and more. Each of the units is divided into lessons for each chapter of the book. For example, along with reading chapter 1 of Little House in the Big Woods, you are supplied with an outline map of Wisconsin to locate places she mentions (plus a U.S. map to trace the travels of the Ingalls family), a suggestion to examine pictures of the animals included in the chapter, a discussion of the types of foods eaten by the Ingalls family, and an art activity in which children, provided with a log cabin outline, draw the way they think the inside and outside of the Ingalls' cabin might have looked. Chapter 2 had you writing about your favorite day (based on a discussion revolving around a quote by Ma), making butter, and doing "Jack Frost" art. Useful background information on Mrs. Wilder and her books is also included. The Little House books are easily borrowed from the library, if you don't already own them.
