Sometime ago I posted several entries about a theme unit on "The Princess Bride".
- As You Wish - Princess Bride Theme Unit
- More Princess Bride Resources
- Princess Bride Unit VoiceThread
Week two we focused on pirates including a giant pirate flag mosaic, (foam) pirate sword fights, pirate maps, pirate jokes (via a free iPhone app) and the making of various pirate props (eye patches, hooks, hats).
Next week we will focus on the animals of The Princess Bride - eels, ROUS (Rodents of Unusual Size - Capybaras) and horses. We will make "eel" appetizers and paper plate eel crafts in addition to learning about eels, capybaras and horses.
We four will focus on "If I were in the Princess Bride". We will learn about our assets, focus on the characters and which our favorites are and why we like them. We will make trading cards at ReadWriteThink.org and do some rhyming like Fezzik. We will also catch up on all the projects unfinished from the first three weeks!
Week five will be about Princess Bride Sensations! We will try our hand at making things sink or float in water, work with sand like the lightening sand in the Fire Swamp and create a tactile board game (as well as play it).
Finally week six will be our wrap up week with time spent scrap-booking about our summer of The Princess Bride and preparing for our end-of-summer theme party.
