What would Curious George do if he visited your school? What crazy adventures would he have? These and many other questions provide the framework for students to create a digital class book about Curious GeorgeŰŞs adventures in their school. In this lesson, students begin by exploring a familiar character (Curious George) by using books, a website, and a graphic organizer. Students extend what they have learned by imagining what George would do if he visited their school. Students work in pairs to discuss locations in the school George might visit and what he might do in each location. Next, students take George on a trip to each location and take a photo of him posed in a humorous way. After taking pictures of the funny monkey in a variety of poses and locations, students work together to create a storyboard and then a digital "book" that tells their story.
