Someday a Tree cover Headline News

Someday a Tree

written by Eve Bunting, illustrated by Ronald Himler

Have children create headlines for key events in Someday a Tree that could appear in a newspaper or on a news website.  Printed in large letters on newsprint, these headlines can be incorporated into a bulletin board or wall display.  This activity is good practice on identifying main ideas.

Saving the best headlines for numerous books can allow you to create a quiz-like display that challenges children to match headlines to books.
