This document consists of three books in one. The first book is a reproducible book for students titled "Tiggy and Me and Butterfly, Too!" about traveling around the world. The second book, for the teacher, includes a guide to teaching the student's book and a comprehensive whole language, multicultural, multidisciplinary resource book. The third book contains over 55 cross-curriculum activity blacklines and 40 Spanish and Japanese student's poetry translations. In the student's book, a little boy and his pet cat travel from the sea floor to the moon. The emphasis is on exploring the earth, its land, and its people. The story is told in rhyme, is open-ended, and has a lesson about getting home on time. At the end of the 25 lessons the students, with the teacher's help, have made their own copy of the book using the reproducible illustrations and poetry text. This student's copy also can contain the teacher-directed daily writing in each child's "captain's log" about the places and countries visited. The students receive an illustration and a poem from the reproducible book for each lesson. When the 20 poems are concluded each child binds the colored illustrations, poems, writing, and activity sheets to create a new book. For the teacher, this resource book has been constructed with the 20 reproducible story illustrations and poems with their Spanish and Japanese translations, a 25-day lesson plan guide, 15 daily teaching activities, 55 possible cross-curriculum reproducible activities, and multicultural materials lists.
