As I read about Jadav Molai Payeng and his work in India planting trees http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Making-a-difference/2016/0616/This-tribesman-planted-a-forest-in-India-that-s-bigger-than-Central-Park I thought about the other tree stories I have shared and a few new ones I am just learning about. We could learn and teach a lot of our world through the tree stories of Wangari Matthai. Kate Sessions, Anne Frank and The Little Bonsai from Hiroshima. If you have other book suggestions let me know!
If you need credits and want to take some awesome courses look at the on line/face to face courses from Primary Source http://www.primarysource.org/. Make sure to check out their library too!
There are so many ways to study, read and enjoy Talking Walls. I have complied a list of themes and think it would fun for teachers and students to find the walls that align with the themes. What walls are man-made? How may talk about architects? How many hats are in the book? What stories do the hats tell?
Let me know if you have another theme to add to my list!
- Natural Walls
- Man-made walls
- World Heritage sites
- decorated walls
- memorial walls
