This week, students will be exploring two worlds in the book Over and Under the Snow by Kate Messner.  This is one of the 10 titles on the primary 2013-14 Virginia Readers’ Choice list.

In this story, students will learn about animals that live under the snow during the cold winter months.

This book comes highly recommended…

Messner packs much information into the serene wintry landscape, beautifully captured in Neal’s stunning retro-style illustrations. Calm, lovely and richly informative. ~New York Times

After students read the story, we will watch a National Geographic video clip about a fox searching for food beneath the snow.  Then we will begin a two-part art project to show what we learned.
