Do your students like clues, games, puzzles, and riddles? Then this is the book for them! Prior to the workshop, read Chris Grabenstein’s The Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, a fast-paced, riddle-filled story with all kinds of humorous and creative clues to help unravel the ultimate puzzle. At the museum, Amon Carter educators provide resources and activities, including puzzles, rebuses, and riddles, that connect the book’s main themes and artworks to help support implementing the book in participants’ curriculum. Art-making and rebus-writing opportunities are included throughout the program.
Elementary school librarians and art, gifted and talented, language arts, and reading teachers from classroom and homeschool settings, as well as preservice teachers, are encouraged to attend, although others may benefit and are welcome to register.
