STORY EXTENSION: 10 Little Rubber Ducks
10 Little Rubber Ducks by Eric Carle is based on a news story that the author saw in a newspaper about rubber ducks falling off a container ship during a storm. Each of the 10 rubber ducks in the story follow their own unique path.
Here are some activities you can use to extend this book:
- Put rubber ducks into you water play area
- Sing 5 Little Ducks at Circle Time - provide a felt board in your reading area with 5 little ducks and a mother duck
- Encourage counting and matching by asking children to match the number of loose ducks to the number of ducks on enveloppes.
