Activity Overview

In the story, the author briefly tells what the camel’s hump is used for. A fun way for students to learn more about camels and their humps is to have them create a storyboard web using facts they know, or have researched. Students can work individually or in pairs to compile a list of facts about the camel. Set a targeted fact for the students to research (for example, solely about the camel’s hump and its purpose), or have students choose and create a web with any facts they find.

In this activity, students will illustrate their facts using the storyboard art or photos found on Photos For Class.
