The Polar Express

Post by Sonshine on Sun Nov 08, 2009 8:00 am

I'm trying to put together a thematic unit for the Polar Express. Has anyone done one? If so, could you share some ideas with me? Ty is working mostly at a second grade level, although in some areas he could probably handle some third grade studies. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Here is part of one that is still being worked on. I typed in thematic study on the Polar express.


That is after I googled thematic study Smile

You taught me something new today. I will look into this for wesley.

Thematic units are wonderful, in my opinion. I've done a few during my time homeschooling. I've done one on Ancient Egypt, the Westward Expansion and a few on different books we've read. Ty just got the Polar Express through his children's book of the month club, so I figured it would be nice to do a unit study on it. Hopefully I can find enough to keep it going till Christmas break.

I just went to the site you gave and they have some good ideas. Thanks. Now I'm off to do some research on the Northern Lights and modes of transportation to the North Pole to compare costs. Smile

There were others listed but they didnt have as much. We are studying tracks that animals make. So far we have chicken, duck, horse, pig, oppusm, racoon, deer, and his foot print. You have to love little kids. He told me the other day that butts sitting in the sand or snow left tracks. I never thought of that before but he had apperantly and he is only 5. :p

LOL Kids are so precious. While searching for things to go with the Polar Express I found the site to show making snowflakes with borax. I had forgotten about that. We don't get much snow down here, so maybe Ty will have fun making snowflakes, and I can throw in a science lesson with the theme.

We don't have any Borders Stores in our area. I'll see if Books A Million will be doing anything like that.
