The Grass Is Not Always Greener

Emily Woods, Fourth Grade, Barringer Academic Center

Curriculum Unit (pdf)


In this curriculum unit, the students will read Coraline by Neil Gaiman. While reading the book, the students will create Instagram posts to show what they visualize in the story as they read. The students will generate a point of view from a prompt from another character’s thoughts and actions. Wrapping this lesson up, the students will watch the movie Coraline and complete a novel study contract. They will reflect on differences of what the movie showed versus what they created while doing their posts.
