These second graders read a tender and affectionate tale that reminded them of the comforting power of friendship, and the joy of helping others.

The story sparked them to be creative using math, science, procedural writing, drama, and art.  After drawing, measuring, and writing their procedures, they made a nest for a baby crow (a character in the story).  They figured out how to make it 3-D and added a baby crow so they could hang them on the wall.
