Upper Elementary Lesson: Journey or Quest

Upper Elementary Lesson: Journey or Quest

3.00

Have you seen Aaron Becker's book Journey and its sequel Quest (there’s also a third in the trilogy, called Return)? They are amazing wordless picture books that showcase the imaginative journey of a girl through many unexpected adventures. The books speak so well to the feeling of boredom and how we can use our imagination to become "unbored." 

Along those lines, the poses in this lesson plan work with the theme of “imagination.  Because the kids were left somewhat to their own devices to either do the traditional poses or make up a new version, I tried to call attention to kids that were really working hard to challenge themselves. When I saw a pose (traditional or self-created) that was being executed safely and with focus, I would ask the class to stop and either just notice that person's pose or to try it themselves.
