Peggy by Anna Walker – Book Activity

Leave a comment

Peggy by Anna Walker (nominated for Early Childhood Book of the Year) is about a chicken named Peggy. A big gust of wind picks her up and blows her from her quiet street to the big city of Melbourne. She faces her fears & explores the busy city, seeing many new & exciting things, eventually finding her way home.
After reading the book, flip through the book again & make a list with the students of all the things she saw and did on her adventure. Show the students how to write a diary entry (Dear diary….). Have students write a diary entry as if they were Peggy – describe what they saw & how they felt. They can then illustrate some of the highlights of Peggy’s adventure.
