Chapter 5

Grandma's Hut:    The room was warm, and my belly was full. Good fortune had found me.

Pre-Chapter Discussion Questions

  1. How many of your grandparents are still living?
  2. Do you have a favorite grandparent?
  3. What do you think makes a grandparent the most special?
  4. Is there a person not related to you that you call “Grandma” or “Grandpa?”

Follow-Up Activity — Build Grandma's Hut

Working in small groups, using only materials that can be found in nature (sticks, stones, dried grass, straw, dirt, mud, etc.) build huts. Provide heavy cardboard bases for the projects. Do not give how-to instructions. Students are to work as a unit to create a durable structure.

Chapter 6

Sky Full of Dragons: Are the wings long and flapping or short and flittering?" she would want to know.

Pre-Chapter Discussion Questions

  1. Do you like to lie in the grass and look at the clouds?
  2. Do you like to look for animal-shaped clouds in the sky?
  3. When you dream about your future, what do you see?

Follow-Up Activity — Dragon Watch

On a cloudy day, take the class outside. Find a dry spot and lie back in the grass to watch the clouds. Notice the shapes of the clouds. Can anyone spot a dragon-shaped cloud? Other animal-shaped clouds? Is the wind blowing the clouds? Use white chalk on blue construction paper to illustrate the shapes of clouds spotted.
