Head Outside...

Spring is the perfect time for cloud gazing. Take a blanket outside, lay on your back and see what shapes the clouds are making today!

Just like with the It Looked Like...? Activity, you could take a picture of each cloud and make a book by gluing each photo to a page and copying the text from the book, substituting what the cloud looked like

Sometimes it looked
like a house.
But it wasn’t a house. 

...Or Stay In

Too cloudy outside? Stay in and try this: Give your readers a sheet of white paper and ask them to tear a shape. Lay the shapes on a counter or table and view them from different angles. What do each of you see?
