Marion the Hedgehog and Book Care

The book care lessons continued with our second graders reading and talking about Marion in What Happened to Marion's Book? by Brook Berg.

We first visited the National Geographic Kids website for hedgehog information. We learned about what a hedgehog looks like, where they live, and why it has spines. We even watched a video of a hedgehog!

Marion the Hedgehog, the main character in our story, is based on a true story, so we also visited Marion's official website to learn more about her past and her role as an author.

Finally, students worked in pairs to write a book care expectation on a hedgehog spine that later became part of a library display. Check out some of the students' work below: 



And their finished products:
