Kids love dragons. There's no denying it. Elementary school activities or lesson plans that include dragons often do a great job of holding a students' interest. Kathy Prater, reading specialist and Adjunct Professor at Mississippi University for Women, came up with some wonderful Science, Art, Math, and English cross-curricular activities that not only have a tie to dragons, but have a tie to my picture book, Old MacDonald had a Dragon.
Take a look at her ideas on the International Reading Associations' website at www.reading.org/general/Publications/blog/BlogSinglePost/engage/2013/05/23/putting-books-to-work-ken-bakers-old-macdonald-had-a-dragon.
