Before reading, hand out lines of a poem and have students try to build an idea of what the poem will be about...invite two students to play good angel/bad angel for a book character...have students perform a vocabulary statue depicting the meaning of terms such as global warming or deforestation. This book has many motivating ideas like this that energize students before, during, and after reading. These strategies can be done individually, or through pair work or groups. Great for deepening reading strategies such as activating prior knowledge, inferring, visualizing, making connections, and more.
