Frames for Edward Tulane

Frames are a way for the students to apply the GT ideas of depth and complexity for a concept or characters from a story or event. In this activity we used them to compare the different perspectives people had of Edward Tulane, the stuffed rabbit who for one person was treated like their child, another a confidant, etc. It's very challenging for young children to apply these concepts, much less have to think about several at once. One student noted that her "brain hurt" after completing it, but I was really happy with the results.

This little girl is just now mastering sounding out her words to write. So proud of her!
