Week 1 (6/18 - 6/22)
The author and artist Lynne Cherry journeyed deep into the rain forests of Brazil to write and illustrate her gorgeous picture book “The Great Kapok tree”. Using this book for inspiration, campers will participate in a book study that will explore connections to various STEAM topics. Activities will reinforce Common Core State Standards for Literacy by analyzing the story, making inferences, and synthesizing information to draw conclusions. Campers will also get hands-on experiences with creating a stop motion video utilizing Visual Arts, Plant Sciences and basic music theory.
