PREPARATION

  1. Scout out a good spot to take students outdoors on the school grounds, a place that preferably has grass or that feels somewhat “natural.” If such an area isn’t available, it is okay to do this activity on constructed spaces such as sidewalks, playgrounds, and even inside the classroom if absolutely necessary, but it’s best done outdoors.
  2. Prepare the Literal vs. Figurative Language Guide by making it into a transparency or making copies for each student.
  3. Test out the Flip Book Student Interactive.
