Fall has finally reached our area of the south, and we have been studying fall-related themes. For stART (story+art) this week, we read Raccoon On His Own by Jim Arnosky. The book follows baby raccoon as he travels through the swamp in a dugout canoe.
We made a raccoon to go along with the story. I just free-hand cut the parts out of paper and Miss M glued them on. Miss M traced her hands to make the raccoon's eye mask. The stripes on the tail were just colored with black marker.
