The basics of my AWESOME project is the students an I will select books and began a pilgrimage to destenations through our imaginations, these stories can offer an introduction to a wonderful world of armchair. The children will be engaged in creative lessons and discussions weekly. Ultimately, the students will be asked to make connections between the book and their lives, which will culminate in a final "passport" project. The students will use a page in their "passport" for each country they will also complete a reading strategy used in the classroom as the" country's stamp" example; character and setting from China: Tikki Tikki Tembo or main idea from Austrailia: Possum Magic. We will also enjoy a snack from the books' country. We will also use the map to track our travels.
