Have you read the book Only One You? I bought it back in July and never used it in my classroom... until this past week that is. This book caused such great discussion with my 4th graders. There is "only one you" in the entire humongous world!
After reading the book and having an awesome discussion about how we are all unique and special we painted rocks. We painted our own "rockfish" just like the pictures found in the book.
I gave the rocks a coat or two of shellac and after they dried the students placed them around the perimeter of our garden. The students absolutely LOVED doing this activity!
And now for the giveaway.....
