Toot and Puddle Unit Study Lessons
Here are a few sample lessons from the Toot and Puddle unit study:
Discuss travel. Would your child like to travel? Where would he go? How would he get there? What would he do there?
Methods of Travel
Ask your child if they know different ways to Travel (Airplane, Car, Boat, Bus, Train, etc.) Why would you choose one of these ways of travel over another? Which is fastest? Which is slowest? Which method do they think Toot used to travel?
Discuss being separated from a loved one. Has your child ever been apart from someone? What are some ways that you can make the separation easier? (Carrying a picture, talking on the phone, sending letters, carrying something that belongs to the person with you…)
Make sure that your student knows that being separated from someone does not decrease how much that person loves and cares about them!
Mapping the Journey
Discuss some of the locations that Toot traveled to, and explore as there is interest. Take out a map and find these places!
Suggestions include Cape Cod, Grand Canyon, Redwood Forests, Egypt, Solomon Islands, India, the Alps, Spain.
Track Toot’s travels around the world!
