Carrots Galore!

• Do rabbits actually eat carrots? Research rabbits, their habitats and what they like to eat. (W.1.7,2.7,3.7)

Peter Brown’s illustrations were inspired by old horror films and Twilight Zone episodes. The Creepy Carrot Zonevideo includes several grade-level appropriate (not-too-scary) flim clips.

• Watch the video, then create a drawing or collage that has a scary mood. (RL.1.7,2.7,3.7)
