Sarah, Plain and Tall

There's a Build-a-Prairie website where the students can learn about the plants that make up this habitat. If you google Build-a-Prairie, it shoudl come up. I have also had them create advertisements looking for a wife/husband, similar to what Jacob does to advertise for Sarah. I have also had them create and write descriptive winter scenes of what the prairie would like like based on clues from the book. Students could also do character sketches of their favorite character, using the traits and proof found in the book. We also follow this up by showing the videos of Sarah, Plain and Tall and Skylark. There are actually four books in the series now, Sarah, Plain and Tall, Skylark, Caleb's Story and More Perfect Than the Moon. All of them are great read alouds, too.
