Making sense of the written word.
After reading a story about “directing air traffic” or finishing a description about “horse saddles,” students are asked to use the information they have learned. What part is the girth anyway?
Creative illustrations are a part of this learning process. For example, a list of mythical characters including a “centaur” are first defined. Then pupils are asked to identify the corresponding image. Can you figure out which creature is a “griffin?”
Without a doubt, the 30 illustrated activities included in this book provide an intriguing way to boost comprehension skills.
