Students will use books, Internet, and people to gain background knowledge of hat making and hat fashions. In a culminating activity, students will design a hat that represents their personality and special interest. The students and I spend lots of time in our classroom reading and experiencing books. These books allow us to travel to faraway places and dream about our thoughts as we put them on paper. Below is a story the students and I composed during our unit on hats. The illustrations were created by the students. So sit back in your special spot were your imagination can take you and enjoy our story.
