Between the six poems there are 5 opportunities for other objects. Beside the quilt these are taken from a museum project in which the children chose their top 10. The ones I've decided to use are: The Chameleon (who lives in Madagascar like the Golden Mantella) and who at the museum occupies the next door tank); the Wolf (who forms part of The Nature Discovery section which houses a fairy tale collection of animals - and a giant ant - to entice younger visitors) Stan the T. Rex, and a mummy case.
Although these five objects don't have poems they give opportunities for discussion, poetry games and story telling. I'm working on a story about a wolf and a boy who travels to find him, based on a Native American story
Then I need to think up some jokes....
