I would use this book across all elementary grade levels to examine writing styles. This book is also good for teaching reading comprehension skills like predicting, imaging, monitoring, and summarizing. I would use the book to introduce a social studies lesson emphasing how the boat travels to different places. The book also mentions the weather conditions and the jobs the people are doing in those places. Since the little boy's toy boat begins its travel down a brook which emptied into a river, which emptied into the sea, this book could also be used in the Engage portion of a 5E integrated lesson introducing weather patterns, water cycles, bodies or water, or erosion. So many posssibilities for lesson plans lie within this one fiction.
