Before we had books...

How did people share stories with each other before we had books?  That was our topic du jour for the younger grades.  We realized that we share stories in many different ways:

  • Through music and songs;
  • with dance and movement;
  • using pictures and art, and
  • acting and telling, just to name a few.

We looked at examples of ancient cave drawings and thought about what messages the ancient people were sending to each other.  We then took advantage of the the beautiful spring weather to create some of our own drawings, using sidewalk chalk on the bricks in the courtyard.  Our theme was "A Day at Wolf Swamp Road School".
