    Default Ideas for older students and Madeline...

    HI all

    Off hand, I think I would have the third grader really delve into the health and communicable disease lesson and follow that trail. Especially with winter coming!

    I don't really care who did it. I just want you to clean it up.

    Lisa, Check out the ARCHIVED posts for Five in A Row - Madeline. They always give ideas for go-alongs... (books and crafts).

    Off the top of my head, a 3rd grader could do quite a bit of math with Madeline. Since there are 12 girls in 2 straight lines, that lends itself to multiplication and division. What about a French lesson? Some French cooking? A more in-depth look at France of French-speaking countries? The health suggestion is a good one, too.

    I like the idea of multiplication and division...
    We are doing quite a bit with germs and bacteria, but I just needed some other stuff... My well-laid plans sometimes do not work out...
    Thanks so much...

    Dabble in engineering re: the Eiffel Tower. There's a set of plans out there (on the internet) somewhere to make one out of Legos. The internal structure of the Statue of Liberty was designed by Eiffel, btw. Fascinating stuff about how we learned to build big.

    How about some research and presentation (books from library, etc.) about ambulances and first response teams and such. There is a picture of an old fashioned ambulance in Madeline. Perhaps even a field trip to meet an ambulance crew and talk with them?

    When we rowed Madeline we read a go along book Adele and Simon. It had so much architecture and history in the illustrations. We studied the differences, and the similarities in the illustrations of buildings in the two books. Adele and Simon is very detailed, while Madeline is not, and you get the idea of so much movement in Madeline.
    We really focused on the art, I guess.

    One more idea: There's a new Madeline book that was written by the author's grandson. It's called Madeline and the Cats of Rome. If you can find it, it might be a good book for both your students.
