    I love reading this book with my students! I have students pick some wildflowers (we're in more of a rural area) and we dry them. We incorporate music into it by singing some folks songs and discussing what type of musical instruments were common at the time. We dress up and come to school in the early 1900's attire, lunchbox and all! No paper- chalk and chalkboards. Then we do comparisons of the times. We do art with seashells and watercolors. For science we study some of the sea animals. I found that this is a wonderful story for doing character traits. I have students make "paper dolls" of the four main characters and they glue adjectives or traits onto them. Hope these may be of use or encourage new ideas!
