Creative Book Activity – Windblown by Edouard Manceau

This is a great book to have in your Relief Teaching Bag! Simple but a very clever idea.
Windblown is the story of 7 scraps of paper that get tossed around by the wind, and then claimed by different animals. Each page shows how the same scraps create a different shaped animal.
The wind plays the narrator & after all the animals disagree on who the paper belongs to, it ends up blowing & scattering all the pieces, asking the reader to make their own creation.
At the back of the book is a web address where you can go to print off the 7 shapes.

I love seeing what animals the kids come up with!

A little tip to save on paper…print one copy off & then trace the number of shapes you need on the coloured paper. 🙂
