Set Up and Prepare
Use legal size paper to make the copy of the whale. Cut out the copies of the creatures the ladybug meets.
Meeting as a group, spread out the copies of the animals. Explain that you will be sorting according to size, going from smallest to largest. Have students take turns taping the copies to the chart paper, in size order.
Try labeling the pictures according to the order in which they appeared in the story, ie. first, second, third, etc.
Use chalk to draw life-size outlines of the animals on pavement.
