Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World's Most Famous Bear
Winnie's Great War
by Lindsay Mattick
Summer Activity Suggestions
Grades K, 1, and 2:
Create Bravery Badges: Engage with the theme of bravery by helping your child create their own “Bravery Badges.” They can draw a picture of a time they were brave, write a sentence about it, and decorate the badge with stickers or glitter.
Make an Illustration: Finding Winnie has beautiful illustrations. Encourage your child to pick their favorite illustration and draw their own version of it or create a new scene they think might fit into the story.
Animal Care: Work with your child to research bears and another animal of their choice and what it takes to care for them. Make a chart to compare and contrast the two animals' habitats, diets, etc.
Grades 3, 4, and 5:
Keep a Bravery Journal: This summer, encourage your child to draw inspiration from Winnie’s brave feats by keeping their own Bravery Journal, writing down instances of their own bravery or courage. This could include instances when they tried new things, faced their fears, or helped others.
Map It Out: Trace Winnie’s journey from Canada to England, researching each stop, and finding interesting historical and geographical facts. This can be extended to a larger discussion about World War I and the countries involved.
Write a Poem: Winnie-the-Pooh loved poetry. Encourage your child to write a poem about Winnie, one of the other characters from the book, or the themes of courage and friendship.
