I start by asking the kids if the have ever been to the beach after a storm. Since we live within minutes to Cayuga Lake, I know the answer will be an easy "Yes". We talk about how things are washed up on shore from the Lake. I then have them imagine the Ocean after a storm, with starfish washed up on the beach.
Then, I tell them the Story Of The Starfish. . .

When I'm done telling the story, I ask them these questions. We discuss them and write them on the board.
I love their answers. And, I can't wait until next week when we will talk more about Throwing Starfish.
What are the starfish you throw? How do you make a difference? How do you get others to follow? Let me know.Leave a comment below or join the discussion in one of the ways that follow:
