This book is perfect for the beginning of the year as you are establishing your classroom rules and procedures, or later in the Spring, as it lends itself perfectly to Earth Day. I love finding ways to use literature to support other subjects like social studies and science and this works perfectly for topics that revolve around helping others and the planet too! It's like Character Education and Science Mashup of sorts!
Have y'all watched many of the Kid President videos yet? If not, you are missing out! Not only is he adorably funny, his messages are fantastic! Here is a great one to share with your students after reading What if Everybody Did That? Part of what I love about this book is how it ends. I won't completely spoil it for you, but just know that the end of the book and Kid President can encourage your students to think about the ways and the power they have to shape the future. How awesome is that?
If you'd like to do some extension lessons based on the book I've put together a few simple activity pages. They include:
- Cause & Effect Graphic Organizers
- Templates to make your own What if Everybody Did That? class books.
- Vocabulary Activities (choice, responsible, consequence, cause, effect, actions)
- Reflection Writing Activities
