Postcards from Scieszka explores the entertaining works The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, Squids Will be Squids, and Math Curse. Students discover humor and differing perspectives as they hear the inside scoop of the three little pigs, discover how math is all around us, and are taught morals through amusing stories.
This unit uses high-level thinking skills to challenge high-ability learners and also allows for differentiation so that all students in the class may participate. The activities included in Postcards from Scieszka use Bloom’s Taxonomy of Cognitive Development, Williams’ Taxonomy of Creative Thought, Bob Eberle’s SCAMPER, Creative Problem Solving, research skills, cross-curricular activities, and synectics.
