Art and Literacy unit: ‘Fire’ by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley

Here is an integrated art and literacy unit that I developed, designed around the text ‘Fire’ by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley. Both of their texts ‘Fire’ and ‘Flood’ are beautiful stories that provide a springboard for so many teaching and learning experiences, not limited to literacy.

This has been developed primarily as an Art unit of work, with strong links to literacy, but there is also a lot more you could do with this book by way of writing and HSIE. Enjoy!
