    I did this book with my fourth graders this year and we water colored seascapes like Sarah does. We also studied wildflowers starting with the ones she talks about in the book. Each student was assigned a flower and they researched and presented to the class. I had kids bring in some of the local flowers and some kids drew them.
    We also compared life during the time the book took place in and now, as well as life on the prarie compared to elsewhere. It is a great book to practice letter writing with and my kids kept a journal of letters to William and to Sarah that they wrote.
    I hope I helped!
