Challenge Activity-NOV/DEC 2018

The Challenge Activity with a theme of
“Buddies, Books, and Bookmarks!”

  

There are 3 parts to this challenge.

Part 1:
Read the Book, "One," by Kathryn Otoshi
NOTE: There are 3 copies in our school library. Alternate option, online Book.

Before reading the book, "One," by Kathryn Otoshi, ask students what their favorite color is and why they like that color. Share with a partner.

After reading the book, use the following questions for a class discussion or make up your own questions:

  1. What does Blue think of himself? How do his feelings change when he is with Red?

  2. How did the other colors respond to Red’s hurtful words? What happened to Red when no one asked him to stop being mean?

  3. How did One stand up to Red?

  4. What did One show the others?

  5. How did everyone help Blue when Red tried to roll over him?

  6. When was Red asked to be part of the group that counts?

  7. Turn and talk with a partner and talk about a time when you have felt like Red or Blue (or any other color in the book).
