The newest addition to my TpT store is this pdf based on one of my most popular lessons… Haiku Tunnel Books!
A tunnel book is a three dimensional movable book that you read by looking through it. Originally from the mid-18th century, tunnel books are now enjoying new popularity as an art form in their own right.
The tunnel books you’ve seen may look complicated, but my method simplifies the process so that students from 3rd or 4th grade and up can be successful making tunnel books of their own. With this lesson you’ll use a post card as a prompt for writing an original haiku poem, and then create a tunnel book to illustrate it.
My 12 page pdf explains how to write a haiku and gives you several examples to share with your students. Then it takes you step by step through the process of creating a tunnel book to illustrate your haiku, using common materials and a minimum of prep. A student gallery of haiku tunnel books will inspire you to do this lesson with your own students!
