Learn a little something by sending your toy pet into the world…
My name is Inch, and I’m from Wilmette, Illinois. Recently, I traveled to Maryland to visit author Mary Amato (you can see me on the bottom of her rather messy desk holding her pencil). She was surprised to see me and read the tag attached to me. My card asked her to send a note, photo, or postcard to the school about what it’s like where she lives (her geography, culture, climate, population, interesting facts, etc.). Then she is supposed to pass me on to someone else. I’m hoping to travel all around the country. Maybe even the world. Cool, hunh?
Thanks to 5th grade teacher Teresa Dobson at Highcrest Middle School for inspiring her students to follow through with such a great idea.
Do you have a creative teaching idea to share?
