This is a fun activity the younger elementary students can enjoy. After reading The Mitten, By: Jan Brett ask your students to bring in fairly small stuffed animals that are in the book. (fox, bear, mouse, etc.) Then have each child attempt to put their animals into the "mitten" (pillowcase) and see how many animals can fit. This activity is not all that much educational, but does bring some enjoyment into the class room. For any questions, please get a hold of me at
