Explore Prince Edward Island with Anne of Green Gables! Draw and describe this enchanting Canadian island in an accordion book.
In Anne of Green Gables, Anne said, "When I don't like the name of a place or a person I always imagine a new one and always think of them so." When Anne first came to Prince Edward Island she saw many sights and gave them her own colorful new names, such as White Way of Delight or Snow Queen.
After reading Anne of Green Gables, have students find three examples when Anne renamed something. Using Crayola® Metallic Colored Pencils, have them make a list that includes her invented names, the items' real names, and a description of what she renamed. Next to Anne's new name, students create their own original name for the same item and write it down.
Students research the land, animals, people, and resources of Prince Edward Island. Students choose at least three characteristics about this Canadian island, such as lobsters, sandstone cliffs, or red soil and, like Anne, rename them. Using colored pencils, students write down their new names.
Students cut construction paper in half lengthwise with Crayola Scissors. Tape the pieces together at the short ends. Create an accordion book by folding the paper at least seven times.
Students cut two pieces of cardboard the same size as the book's pages. Using Crayola School Glue, attach both covers of the book to the cardboard. Dry.
Using Crayola Gel Markers, Construction Paper Crayons, and colored pencils, students write a title, such as Dictionary of Prince Edward Island, on the front cover. Include Anne and the student's name as the authors. Add decorative sparkle to the cover with Crayola Glitter Glue. Dry.
On the inside pages, students draw pictures and write the new names and descriptions of the examples they chose.
