'Cool Reads' Turns Campus Library Into A Winter Wonderland

If I told you that there was snow in Houston, would you believe me?  Well, visitors to Hollibrook Elementary School's campus recently had snow and more!  A group of educators and librarians worked with parents to create a mini North Pole in the campus library.  The winter wonderland was part of an all-school lesson on The Polar Express by Chris van Allsburg. 

Lesson activities included:
  • learning about weather and a 'real' winter
  • the northern lights
  • math problems about the characters in the book
  • and language arts activities using the book and author
Thank you to Meadow Wood for their inspiration.  The 'cool reads idea' at Hollibrook was inspired by the 'hot reads' display at the Memorial Drive Elementary campus.
