This is such a fun book with details that make you laugh out loud. It has such great imagination which kids should use much more often! My idea with this book is simple, read the book outloud to your class. Then invite them to draw a fantasy car. In the process, they need to list the features that their car would have. As the students are drawing, they would make sure to include all of the features. After everyone finishes their drawing, students could share their fantasy cars with the class. My second grader son and even my kindergartener were drooling over the idea to make their own fantasy car. Check out the handy work below:
I am liking how he spelled Machine: Meshen
That is one thing to take into consideration, the boys in class will definitely be drawn to drawing hidden machine guns, lazers, guns, and such. If your school has a policy about doing such things, don't forget to tell your class that's inappropriate. But as a mother of boys, I know their intentions.
