The Science School Yard: Only One You!

Only One You!

I love books! I love taking a picture book and sharing it in science class. I love making connections to learning. Thanks to Mrs. Jump's Class Blog her linky is a great way to talk about books! I found this great book that I am using in Science to tie our garden into our students' self esteem.

I have the book Only One You by Linda Kranz.

This book, my friends is all about being your own person. The parents in the book at one point share... “Blend in when you need to. Stand out when you have the chance,” and, “Find your own way. You don’t have to follow the crowd.”

They also share... that it is okay to be unique and to follow your dreams. What a powerful message to give our students.
Here is a link to some Only One You Lesson Ideas. Another fun idea comes from Create Art With Me.

I went to Lake Michigan during spring break in the bitter cold to collect some rock beauties! Can't wait to do this project this summer with my community connections groups. I already used some of the rocks with my after school class as they made painted rock veggie markers.
My little troopers helping me pick rocks...Winter Coats during spring break...brrrr!
