The Water Princess K-2

Global 30 minutes
Learning Targets
  1. I will have awareness of the water crisis.
  2. I will answer questions about a story.
  3. I will predict what could happen in a story.
  1. Show students where Burkina Faso is on the map! It is good for them to understand the place-based story.
  2. Have them predict what they think will happen in the story, based on the title and cover.
  3. If you think it would be helpful, have each student take a part in the story: one Gie Gie, Maman, narrator. Read multiple times to give students the chance to participate.
  4. Go through the questions together, answering them either individually or as a group. 
  5. You can choose to tie in a hands on piece of having students paint a scene from the book!
